Our garden at the Battery Bosque was planted by Piet Oudolf. In early morning light, see swathes of native wildflowers such as twinleaf (Jeffersonia diphylla), trillium, Labrador violet (Viola labradorica), golden Alexander (Zizia aurea), wild ginger (Asarum canadense), showy skullcap (Scutellaria serrata), Indian hyacinth (Camassia scilloides) and many other spring ephemerals in this horticulturally rich and unique New York City park.

The 12-acre site will feature a meandering bikeway and walkway through lushly planted perennial gardens; a reconstructed Battery Green, the large oval lawn that serves as a public assembly and performance area; restoration and relocation of 10 monuments to the perimeter for better placement and increased visibility; a protected and replanted woodland area; new paths, trees and seating surrounding the park, and upgraded paving, edging, furnishings and lighting.
