Lower Manhattan Redevelopment
Collect Pond Park
White Street between Center and Lafayette Streets
The reconstruction of Collect Pond Park will transform this triangular paved lot into a green, garden–like park with sitting areas for use by local residents and office workers. The park will include a water feature that will animate and cool the sitting areas as well as provide an attractive feature for park users of all ages. New planting and low fencing will protect the sitting area from nearby traffic. Additional elements include new benches, tables and chairs, lighting, bicycle racks, extensive landscaping, new water supply and irrigation, and a reconstructed storm drainage system.
Project Status: Scheduled to begin in Fall 2010 and will be completed in Fall 2011.
