The Battery Playscape reflects the sea, wind, sand, and surrounding park landscape of gardens. This horticultural haven will serve as a global exemplar of sustainable and climate-responsible playground design.
Set within rain gardens that filter stormwater runoff, play features include five granite slides on the Adventure Bluffs, a grand arena for sand play, three treehouses connected by suspension bridges weaving through the mature tree canopy, and the innovative Jewel Box Theater for improvisational performance and puppet shows. The Battery Playscape will offer creative exploration leading to spontaneous moments of discovery.
The 1.4-acre Playscape will respond to the growing number of Lower Manhattan families, the increase in the number of elementary schools, and the ever-increasing visitation by children from all five boroughs.
