The National Park Service is inviting the public to comment on the  Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Gateway National Recreation Area at the final open house at Jamaica Bay on Sept. 10.

Gateway is at a crossroads and a new vision is necessary to shape the park’s future. The Draft General Management Plan / Environmental Impact Statement (GMP/EIS)  will help park managers focus on what is most important in carrying out a new 20-year vision for Gateway and the mission of the National Park Service.

These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.
