Ferry Point Park Development
Ferry Point Park West
The existing portion of Ferry Point Park, west of the Whitestone Bridge, has recently undergone renovations to enhance this well used facility. For the sports enthusiast, a new synthetic soccer field with bleachers now occupies the northern portion of the site. The passive recreation space includes a new picnic area with tables and grills, as well as a new waterfront sitting area that frames a view of Manhattan across the river. In addition, new plantings enhance the natural beauty of the site. Construction at this park was complete in spring 2010.
Ferry Point West: Comfort Station Montage
The enhancements will also include an 800–square–foot public comfort station. The vandal–resistant, environmentally sound building will serve as a year–round restroom facility and includes storage space and a mechanical room. For convenience, the comfort station will be centrally located close to the ballfields. It has been designed to rise above the flood plane, and is set in a composite wood deck that compliments the park’s design and the surrounding historical features. Construction is expected to begin in late 2012.
