This is an amazing park, planted especially to provide food for wildlife throughout the seasons. They have turned this into a native plant food forest and its one of the few places to forage in Manhattan. With the wonderful Solar One on the north end, the path south leads all the way through East River Park. Houses a 3-bin compost system for yard waste mid-park. Real riverside refreshment - however! The East Side Coastal Resilience - ESCR project is causing this garden to be distributed around the neighborhood. It will be some time before this wonderland returns to its full form.
