Phases III and IV of the park launched just south of the ferry terminal at a projected cost of $2 million, bringing the total cost of the park project to $5 million.
Phase III will create an overlook garden area of approximately 0.6 acres. Features will include a tree-lined waterfront walkway with seating areas, game and picnic tables, and a shade structure and plaza space.
A children’s play area of approximately 0.9 acres will comprise Phase IV of the park. Included will be separate play areas for ages 2-5 and 5-12.
Phases I and II—Pershing Park north to the 9/11 memorial and the memorial itself—are already completed. -- Art Schwartz
