NYC Parks yesterday announced that a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) has been issued for the development, operation and maintenance of bicycle rental stations at David Dinkins Circle at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, with the option for future Queens locations.
“From scenic waterfront parks to destination greenways, Queens is the ideal setting for cyclists to exercise and connect with nature,” said Commissioner Silver. “We encourage prospective operators to respond to this RFP in order to provide New Yorkers and visitors with more opportunities to experience our parks via bicycle.”
NYC Parks is seeking proposals for the development, operations and maintenance of bicycle rental stations in parks throughout Queens. Pre-approved locations include:
- Forest Park
- Little Bay Park
- Alley Pond Park
- Highland Park
The addition of any future Queens locations will be subject to prior written approval from NYC Parks.
