Know Before You Go

ParkSherman Creek

This park will be closed to build passive recreational facilities along the western bank of the Harlem River by constructing an entrance, paths and fencing where such a facility is lacking and in need for access to this site. The project will construct a path system along the Harlem River bank using wood chips and a low wooden guide rail fencing dividing the site from the road. An entrance area with seating and bike racks will be constructed along 10th Avenue using decorative pavements and granite block. A small wooden platform will be provided as a bridge over an eroded area where the path narrows. A drainage system will also be provided.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2014
