GID Development Group has officially opened the city’s newest public park.
Waterline Square Park spans 2.6 acres at the heart of Waterline Square, GID’s residential development along the Hudson River waterfront where Midtown meets the Upper West Side.
Open to the public, the park unifies the buildings of Waterline Square while connecting the nearby waterfront space to the surrounding community.
The coveted green space acts as a backyard for the residents and pets of the Waterline Square residential development, and also as a much-needed outdoor space for residents of the surrounding community to relax, exercise and enjoy nature.
Designed by landscape architecture firm Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, the park features water features, lush plantings, walking paths and an expansive playground.
Developer GID Development Group has programmed the park with a full calendar of socially-distanced events for residents and those nearby, including yoga, musical performances by Grammy-nominated artists and more.
The developer is exploring programming for the park this winter to continue engaging the community.
Waterline Square is a collection of three residential buildings on the Upper West Side with retail offerings including Harry’s Table by Cipriani, Empellón and Somm Cellars Wine & Spirits.
