THE SOUTHERN SECTION OF THE WATERFRONT OFFERS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ESTABLISH A “WETLANDS PARK” BETWEEN A SERIES OF ABANDONED PIERS TO ENHANCE AND REVIVE THE AREA’S RESILIENCY AND ECOLOGICAL VITALITY.
The project stems from the Master Plan for the Central Delaware, which identified this part of the riverfront as ideal for ecological restoration.
The South Wetlands Park project focuses on the area just south of the base of Tasker Street through Pier 70 Boulevard, encompassing Piers 64, 67, 68, and 70. The finished park will not only offer new open space and waterfront access, but environmental education and stewardship opportunities and will serve as a unique model for urban ecological restoration.
