Hunt's Point Riverside Park


Hunt's Point Riverside Park

Project Type: Landscape Design

Project Mission/Goal: Improve the Human Spirit

Project Description:
Hunt's Point Riverside Park was the first new public park created in Hunts Point in many years. Situated along the Bronx River, the park transformed a degraded industrial area into a natural retreat for family recreation. The park adds much needed green space in what is otherwise a highly urbanized environment, while also serving as a venue for both community meetings and youth programs. It allows for recreational access to the Bronx River, a first, while also connecting South Bronx communities. Future work will provide bike connections to Manhattan and other New York City boroughs.
