Rockaway Parks Conceptual Plan

The City of New York is pleased to present the Rockaway Parks Conceptual Plan. This plan highlights our park and open space goals in the wake of Hurricane Sandy: to replace facilities lost from the storm, improve existing parks across the Rockaway Peninsula and Broad Channel, and create a long-term vision that integrates resiliency and enhances community protection.

About the Plan

The Conceptual Plan, released on May 23, 2014, reflects extensive community input, including discussions with Rockaway and Broad Channel residents that began in the spring of 2013.  We would like to thank these residents for the considerable time and effort they committed to helping us to develop this plan. The Conceptual Plan will complement the ongoing reconstruction and resiliency efforts by integrating recreational facilities adjacent to the boardwalk and providing a broader vision for resilient parks and open space.

Moving forward, the Conceptual Plan will guide our future planning and funding efforts.
