Teardrop Park is a public park in downtown Manhattan, in Battery Park City near to the site of the World Trade Center. It was designed by Michael Van Valkenburg Associates, a leading firm of landscape architects. The park design includes artworks specifically designed for the park location by Ann Hamilton.
Built for $17 million, the park features prominent rock outcroppings, geologic formations, a secret path, a bluestone ice wall, a humongous, almost dangerous looking slide, sandboxes, water play areas, a reading space with rock seats, and places to rock hop.
