Hunters Point South Park, once a barren post-industrial site, has emerged as an international model for resilient waterfronts that is both urban and otherworldly. Designed by world-renowned landscape architect Tom Balsley, FASLA, this park embraces the shoreline of NYC’s east river, leveraging its peninsulas into a unique waterfront experience that provides visitors with shifting perspectives as they wander in and out.

Through striking images and anecdotes, Balsley will present this extraordinary park and explore how infrastructure, landscape, and architecture have been woven together into a new open space that creates meaningful connection between surrounding communities. He will also discuss other award-winning projects, including Riverside Park South, Gantry Plaza State Park, Chelsea Waterside Park, and Nelson Mandela Park.
