    Beautiful, appropriate and moving (but no signage)
    This was a beautiful space (and we loved the Oculus, too) but we were mystified by the lack of signage/story boards. Especially as the museum, where presumably most of the information is contained, was closed (as it apparently is on Tuesdays). We never found the special tree and wanted to know about why the names were arranged as they were.

    Amazing
    They have more than 1 Trade Centre. The park has the two pools to represent the twin towers. However the first row of trees closest to the pools represent where the buildings actually stood. All the names of those that were lost have their names on the wall around the pools. If you see a flower by the name, the colour represents whether it is a birthday or anniversary for the person.

    Finally Came From
    It's been under construction for a long time, many years. But now it is coming together as a lovely park in the middle of one of the most dense parts of the city. so some welcome art, green space, and the commemorative spaces. Some good spots to get a perspective on it all. On a sunny day, it is remarkable.

    Very moving
    A piece of American history that gives a glimpse into the American psyche. Central to the exhibition are the people who died. Names, photographs and testimonies are tasteful, moving and somber. Interesting display on Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda.

    Pause for Reflection
    The site of the two towers which were destroyed in the terrorist attack in 2001 has become a very poignant place to visit. Located in the financial district of Manhattan where once there were two bustling office blocks there is now two waterfalls into the ground. Surrounding the two squares are recorded the names of the people who perished in the tragedy. I would recommend visiting this place as it should be a place for contemplation. We should never allow our differences to be so big that we choose to take the lives of others to get our point across and hopefully this is something that this park now represents.

    A Nice Tribute.
    Came here to visit the 9/11 Memorial Pools. The park, as well as the pools, are well-maintained. Lots of people are here in the afternoon, but it's surprisingly quiet, besides the sound of the water running in the pools. A very somber site to visit, which makes you grateful for life. Nice display of the names & a memorial for the firemen lost is on site as well. A must visit while you're in NYC.

Very sombre garden of remembrance for the 9/11 plane crashes. All the victims names are engraved on a square parapet round a sunken pool.

I was lucky to go up Twin Towers back in 1981 and to stand at the waterfall reflecting on the lives that were lost was very moving. The area outside is very quiet and respectful.

Beautiful park and memorial. Truly the best possible way to commemorate 911. The memorial is perfect and I highly recommend coming here. It is a must see!

World trade Centre's Liberty Park is a peaceful area. This is the Memorial for the National 9/11 event. It is a place for reflection.
