Lower Manhattan Redevelopment
Canal Street at West Street
The new Canal Park will continue the legacy of the former park that was removed for the construction of the Holland Tunnel. Past features such as the ornamental fence, granite bollards, hoof benches, and the distinctively shaped central pathway that flowed through the park are incorporated into the new park design. The park will be approximately twice the size of the former and will include granite sidewalks and curbing, interior ornamental fences, cobblestone street tree planting strips, cast iron bollards, and hexagonal asphalt block pavement.
This project was designated as Parks’ Capital Project of the Month for March 2003.
Project Status: Completed
