NYC has over 1,700 parks, playgrounds, and recreation facilities …but there’s only one that floats, the “floating food forest” returns soon!
Built on a 130-foot by 40-foot floating platform, Swale is a collaborative floating food project with edible forest garden. Whether you are familiar with the gigantic green oasis or not, it¡’s definitely worth your time to visit.
This year the park is sporting a new look and is sticking around the city until the fall. Whether you’re a fan of healthy organic food, reconnecting with nature, or just bobbing up and down on the water, Swale is something you need to check out!
You’ll find the floating park in the following locations on the following dates:
- Hudson River Park, Pier 25 from April 20 through June 15
- Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 6 from June 15 through August 1
- Concrete Plant Park (Bronx) from August 1 through November 15
