Covering 16 hectares in land area, the one-north Park is a key component of the one-north master plan. It forms a continuous and linear green spine, running through the entire length of one-north. The beautiful landscape and lush greenery create an interesting contrast against the architecture of the buildings in the area. The park serves as a principle relief space to the work, live, play, learn communities in one-north and is envisioned to be a place for informal gatherings and events, promoting greater interaction and networking among the talents in one-north. The park lends a unique visual identity to the area and acts as a green connector, linking the various developments in one-north.

This site is almost entirely occupied by a steep hill, with a hilltop level of 37 metres. Open Plaza Areas were strategically placed at three major nodal points of activities relating to functions and orientation of the surrounding building. These plazas are design to cater for variety of activities such as, a stage for performances, for dining and retail areas, for activity functions, or just a resting place for users to appreciate the surrounding park and urban environment. New low maintenance material called GFRC (Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete) has tried out to these plazas as deckings.

The waterwall is a continuous vertical wall of approximately 83 metres long aligned to the adjacent promenade pavement. The height of the facade varies from 1.5m at the ends to 3.6 metres at the centre corner and highest elevation. This wall also lighted up during nighttime using LED lights simulating colourful starlight effect to add in the park ambience. Toward the southern end of the park, further plantings of Ficus benghalensis and Ficus benjamina will be reinforced.

JTC and the National Parks Board jointly launched the first three hectares (7.4 acres ) of One-North Park on Thursday, 23 February 2006. One-North Park will eventually comprise 16 hectares. The first phase development took two years from planning to completion in September 2005 and is a $4-million joint-development project. It was planned as a meandering green spine running through and linking critical epi-centres of growth and activity from Buona Vista to the Ayer Rajah Expressway.
