This project will improve public access to the scenic, habitat-rich environment of Eastchester Bay while protecting, restoring and enhancing the natural quality of the park. An accessible waterfront foot path will be established along with a paved park path. Shoreline intrusions will also be removed, including walls, pavements, and a portion of an abandoned stormwater pipe. A historic drainage tributary and native plant communities will be reestablished after removal of invasive species.
