This project will reconstruct paths and drainage systems, construct new entrances, and bioswales and rain gardens, and formalize the Bronx River Greenway in Shoelace Park.

Project Update: The design completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: scope and funding are added to a project, design changes due to comments from other government agencies and the public, design changes due to field conditions found during site testing and/or issues with a design consultant.
