Soundview Park

A new access path at the end of Rosedale Avenue will lead visitors to a viewpoint and amphitheatre overlooking the East River.

PlaNYC Project Overview

Soundview Park was built on a landfill in the South Bronx. Today the 205-acre park offers six grass baseball fields, a cricket pitch, a running track, a soccer field, six basketball courts, six handball courts, and walking/biking paths. Even with those facilities, we can do more.

After receiving extensive community input, the design team developed a master plan that creates centers of activity close to local neighborhoods. The plan calls for the restoration of natural areas, playgrounds, a running track with synthetic turf field, a new comfort station, and a new performance lawn.


Spring 2011-Summer 2013: Playground, sports courts, and comfort station at the end of Metcalf Avenue. Amphitheatre with access path from Rosedale Avenue and a running track with a synthetic turf field.


Fall 2011

The design has been completed. Groundbreaking is expected this fall.
