Yesterday Brooklyn Heights Blog posted the good news that Walt Whitman Park has reopened. (The opening date was pushed back from September.) The park now has new benches, new fencing, a new drainage system and an oval plaza that features several excerpts of Walt Whitman’s writing. The second portion of the renovation (which we believe includes some sort of ornamental water feature) won’t be finished until Spring of 2012. The park is just east of Cadman Plaza Park, between Cadman Plaza East and Adams Street.
