Take your next visit to new heights (literally) with Governors Island’s new Community Climbing Boulder! Located on Western Promenade, the boulder is a joint effort between Trust for Public Land, Trust for Governors Island and The North Face, and it was designed in collaboration with youth from Beam Center & play:groundNYC on Governors Island. There are several different climbing routes posted on site with varying degrees of difficulty, and the boulder is free to use during all public hours on the Island.
The climbing boulder was installed in Spring 2022 with contributions from JCC Construction, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, and Robert Silman Associates Structural Engineers.
