Slide Hill on Governors Island, at 36 feet tall, is home to four slides, including the longest slide in New York City. Slide Hill is one of four man-made hills on Governors Island, constructed of demolition debris, land fill brought to the island by barge and lightweight pumice. The Hills on a 10-acre site, were designed by landscape architect Adriaan Geuze and his team from West 8, a Dutch firm with offices in Rotterdam, New York City and Belgium. Groundbreaking for The Hills occurred on July 25, 2013. They will open to the public on July 19, 2016 — a year ahead of schedule.
