Across the path from the successful SeaGlass Carousel is The Battery Playscape, an innovative world of play and creativity designed and now being built by The Battery Conservancy (TBC). The new 1.5-acre Playscape triples the size of the current playground to respond to the growing number of Lower Manhattan families, the expanding elementary schools, and the increase visitation of children from all five boroughs.
BKSK Architects and Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners collaborated to create a play environment reflective of this unique nature-focused location. Playscape elements are inspired by climate, sea and wind. Rain gardens will filter urban runoff and serve as a global exemplar of sustainable playground design. It will feature:
