Know Before You Go

ParkLittle Bay Park

The parking lot off Totten Avenue is closed to construct a new comfort station and expand the parking lot at Little Bay Park to serve users of both Little Bay Park and Fort Totten park. The existing parking lot will be reconstructed and new planted islands (swales) will be added to improve air quality and reduce storm water run-off. The Brooklyn-Queens Greenway, which currently runs along the southern end of the park, will be relocated along the waterfront and extended into Fort Totten Park. New landscaped meadows and tree plantings will be added between the parking lot and the Cross Island service road, and a new comfort station will be added to Little Bay Park. This project will improve public access to Little Bay and Fort Totten Parks and will improve the utility and public enjoyment of the Greenway. A smaller parking lot is available off the Cross Island Service Road.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
