Pier 44 Waterfront Garden
290 Conover Street @ Pier 44
Red Hook, Brooklyn
Enter through gate on right near the end of Conover Street
Walk toward the water, garden on right

With walkways and plantings installed in the spring of 2004, this waterfront garden is a natural oasis tucked among the beautiful Civil War era piers that make up the Red Hook section of the Brooklyn waterfront. The plantings were designed to be tolerant of the brackish water of New York Harbor and the winds that blow constantly over the area. The garden, whose design and installation were generously funded by local developer Greg O’Connell, is a popular destination in this increasingly residential part of Red Hook and is open from morning to dusk.

In the spring of 2006, Lynden B. Miller Public Garden Design designed and installed plantings for an adjacent waterfront property which is home to a new Fairway grocery store and a number of rental apartments. Hopefully, these sites will eventually be connected with other parks and gardens along the waterfront to create popular destination for residents and visitors alike.
