The hanging park is built on a former railway track that runs at a height of about 7-10 meters above street level. The High Line Park currently measures 2,300 metres and opened in 2011, with a width of around 10 metres along its entire length.

In some parts the old rails have been deliberately left in place, with a variety of greenery planted between them, while in others new spaces have been created with benches, a beautiful lawn and flower beds.
