NYC Parks Commissioner Veronica M. White today joined Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, State Assembly Member Joseph R. Lentol and Council Member Stephen Levin to cut the ribbon on a brand new headquarters building with community space and an accessible green roof in Bushwick Inlet Park. The $31 million construction project, funded by Mayor Bloomberg, also includes a new playground, and the creation of public access to the waterfront at the water’s edge. The additions to Bushwick Inlet Park build on the 2005 Greenpoint-Williamsburg rezoning which creates a framework to provide continuous public access to the area’s shorefront.
“All over Brooklyn – from Shore Road Park in the south to Bushwick Inlet in the north -waterfront parks are attracting pedestrians, picnickers, and sports enthusiasts to spend time outdoors,” said Commissioner White. “The new waterfront Bushwick Inlet Park complements the existing soccer field by accommodating community art exhibitions, community meetings and public programming, a kitchen for catering public events, playground, public comfort stations and Parks district headquarters.”
