Hudson Yards is an oasis of urban green space, set where three of New York City’s newest and most unique parks come together.  The creators of Hudson Yards have devoted half of the site area to verdant open space, creating 14 acres of new parks, plazas and playgrounds. Designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, the much-anticipated public square will be the heart of

Hudson Yards, offering lush gardens, serene seating areas and a year-round calendar of events.  The neighborhood is ringed by three distinct city parks, giving residents direct access to the 500 waterfront acres of Hudson River Park, as well as the new Hudson Park & Boulevard and the iconic 1.5-mile elevated park, the High Line.
