Proposed rendering


The Battery Garden Bikeway will link the Hudson River Park Bikeway to the East River Esplanade. The bikeway will include new park entrances, unique perennial gardens designed by Piet Oudolf, and separate areas for bikers and pedestrians. To celebrate The Battery’s rich history, ten existing monuments, representing our nation’s explorers, defenders, and inventors, will be relocated to the park’s perimeter edge. Many of the monuments will be situated at park entrances that correspond to the existing street pattern. This will create strong view corridors to help lead visitors to the park, especially at night when the monuments will be illuminated.
