Hunter's Point South Waterfront Park


After more than four years of development, Hunter's Point South Waterfront Park is now welcoming visitors in Long Island City, USA, marking the first chapter of rejuvenation for the riverside neighborhood in Queens, New York.

Designed by Thomas Balsley Associates and Weiss/Manfredi, Hunter's Point comprises a sprawling, oval-shaped green to accommodate all types of recreational uses, including: an urban beach, a rail garden featuring native fauna planted over disused freight rails, and a soaring, eye-catching pavilion that connects urban-dwelling areas to the East River waterfront. The park's elevated wooden boardwalk has decking in Kebony clear.
