While this park is sure to provide tons of fun and amazing views to families and visitors, there is a strong emphasis on the educational aspect it will provide, too. “This is the first pier dedicated to the ecology of the area, and it will also be a place where the community can partake in a variety of activities,” Madelyn Wils, the president and CEO of the Hudson River Park Trust, told reporters. “This would be the first time that this type of ecological area has been built in the city, and it will serve as a great educational tool.”
Sustainable wood will be used throughout the pier to create the deck that will rise up to 15 feet in some places.
