Great Falls National Park
Location: Paterson, NJ
Project Team: Julia Watson
Great Falls National Park is a contemporary national treasure that sits atop many complex layers of historic transformation and change.
As literally the kinetic heart of Paterson’s industrial development, the Great Falls and surrounding park can now re-emerge as the cultural heart of a dense urban community. Situated in the midst of socio-economically and ethnically diverse neighborhoods the newly designated park provides a rare opportunity to re-imagine how parks can enrich urban landscapes and provide a vibrant and integrated social atmosphere.
