Description
Tour the World Trade Center’s Liberty Park, an elevated, one-acre linear park built on top of a vehicular security-screening center overlooking the original footprint of the World Trade Center, now the National September 11th Memorial.

One of the park’s most striking features is the multi-hued 25 feet high and 336 feet long G-O2® Living Wall by Plant Connection that transforms the prosaic walls and garage entrances leading to the network of underground roadways and loading docks. The living wall plantings were designed in a staggered, horizontal grid to complement the 9/11 Memorial. Plant Connection will take you through the inspiration, design, installation and maintenance process of this beautiful green wall
