Riverside Park South Playground, Bikeway, and Plazas Construction

  • Design

  • Procurement

  • Construction
    98% complete

This project will construct a portion of Riverside Park South between West 65th Street and West 68th Street, including new plazas, play areas, lawns, volleyball courts, and a dog run, and it will reconstruct the bikeway between West 62nd Street and West 70th Street.

Due to COVID related construction industry impacts, this project may experience schedule delays. We will update the capital tracker as more information becomes available.

Project Update: The contract completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: issues with a contractor, design error or omission, unexpected field conditions, change in the scope of the project, pending approval and registration of change orders and/or inclement weather.
