A New Yorker is working to launch a floating beach park on a river barge that will be located in the Hudson River by Manhattan.

Created by designer Blayne Ross, the City Beach NYC project is currently seeking to raise funds on Indiegogo. The campaign aims to create awareness of the project among the community, generate support and show city officials, investors and brand partners that there is support for the project.

The City Beach NYC project basically involves building a recreational beach park on a reclaimed barge that has been covered with sand. The floating beach park will visit the area during summer months and provide recreational and educational activities for New Yorkers.

The floating beach park will have an upper deck with recreational spaces, restaurants, and sunbathing areas, and a lower deck that will house changing rooms, the guest services desk, a surf shop, and a kids history and marine science lab. The history and science lab will include marine touch tanks and interactive kiosks where children can learn more about the history of the Hudson River and the water quality and resident marine life in the park.
