Community Meeting 1/21/16 – Shoreline Parks Plan

Posted on 6 January 2016 | Comments Off on Community Meeting 1/21/16 – Shoreline Parks Plan

Greetings!! Our friends at NYC Parks will be holding a public community meeting on January 21st regarding the construction of a sea wall from South Beach to Great Kills. See below for location details.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has proposed the construction of a protective seawall from Fort Wadsworth to Great Kills Park. Recognizing the effect this important project will have on our parkland, NYC Parks is developing the Shoreline Parks Plan to guide the adaptation of our shoreline parks to this flood protection. We are seeking input from the community through this planning process.

Subject: Community Meeting 1/21 – Shoreline Parks Plan

Dear friends,

Please join us to provide your input on designs for the future of our shoreline parks on Staten Island’s East Shore, from South Beach to Great Kills Park.
Community Meeting on Staten Island’s Shoreline Parks Plan
Thursday, January 21, 2016
7:00 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex – Meet upstairs in the Indoor Track & Meeting Room area.

NYC Parks’ consultants will share their draft designs for a plan to integrate our shoreline parks to the Army Corps’ planned protective seawall from Fort Wadsworth to Great Kills Park. Provide your feedback, share your ideas, and tell us what’s most important to you in your shoreline parks.

Everyone is welcome to attend this event and to contribute ideas. Refreshments will be served.

Discovery Day at Fresh Kills Park

Posted on 17 June 2015 | Comments Off on Discovery Day at Fresh Kills Park

We packed up our boats and set off to Fresh Kills Park to provide our free kayaking program for their June 7th Discovery Day event.   Hundreds of visitors got their feet wet and paddled the creek that separates North Park and East Park.  The parks resident Ospreys flew overhead as the paddlers took to the water on a picture perfect summer day.  Special thanks goes out to our volunteers who provided the support to make this event possible. Thank you!
