By RICH CALDER
January 18, 2007

Five prominent landscape-architect teams are vying to design up to 87 acres of park space on Governors Island, with incredible views of the harbor and Statue of Liberty.

The Governors Island Preservation and Education Corp. yesterday narrowed the list from dozens of entries. Following public forums and presentations, it will select a designer this summer.

The finalists include New York-based Field Operations, which is partnering with British-based Eyre Architects. Field's projects include Lake Ontario Park in Toronto.

The others selected were New York's Ramus Ella Architects; New York-based Ramus Ella Architects/Paris-based Michele Desvigne Paysagistes; Hargreaves Associates; and a team including Dutch firm West 8.
