The Hills Are Opening in 2016!

The Hills are opening this summer! You'll be able to enjoy spectacular view, like this one, from the top of Outlook Hill

Exciting news today! We are opening The Hills in the summer of 2016, nearly a year ahead of schedule. Thanks to an unseasonably warm fall and rigorous construction management, we can complete and open the Hills in 2016 instead of completing in December 2016 and opening in May 2017.

And the Hills aren’t the only thing opening in 2016. The 2.2 mile promenade around the edge of the Island will reopen to visitors for biking and walking for the first time since we began the Island’s construction program in 2012.  Hello, Lady Liberty!

That means you can climb, scramble, slide, stroll, sit, picnic and revel in phenomenal views with ten new acres of parkland for the first time this summer, and you can bike all the way around the Island again!

Keep your eye out on this blog, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for updates, including more construction preview tours and opening day news.
