10-Acre park on Governors Island opens to the public:

Areas within the new park have been given names relating to their specific amenities, such as Grass Hill, Slide Hill, Discovery Hill, and Outlook Hill. Slide Hill, which stands 36 feet high, boasts four slides, one of which is the biggest in the Big Apple, running 57 feet in length. The 39-foot-high Discovery Hill features a public sculpture by British artist Rachel Whitehead, which is a concrete cast of the interior of a wooden, New England-style shed. Outlook Hill, however, is the show-stopper of the bunch. Visitors can climb to reach the breathtaking views of the Statute of Liberty and skylines of both Manhattan and Brooklyn from its outlook via a universally accessible path or a more challenging “Scramble” over the structural base of the site made of reclaimed granite blocks originally used for the decommissioned seawall .
