Ferry Point Park
Ferry Point Golf Course Term Approved by FCRC
Wednesday, March 14, 2007
Today, the Franchise and Concession Review Committee (FCRC) unanimously authorized the Department of Parks & Recreation to issue a Request for Proposals for the development, operation and maintenance of an 18-hole golf course facility and ancillary facilities at Ferry Point Park in the Bronx with a license term of thirty-five (35) years. The Department of Parks will proceed with the RFP after giving thirty days’ notice to the local Community Board.
"With its action today, the FCRC has allowed Parks to restart the phased development of Ferry Point Park in the Bronx," said Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe. "We look forward to providing a premier golf course and two new public parks to realize the long-envisioned plans for this new park development."
The Parks Department will begin designing and developing two new parks at Ferry Point to open in 2009. The first phase will include a 7.5-acre community park on the eastern end of Ferry Point Park that will likely include a new ball field, tot lot, playground, basketball court and nature trail. Next, Parks will develop a 19-acre waterfront park on the southern edge of the property that will feature a promenade with breathtaking views of the East River, city skylines and the Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges.
