The Prospect Park Alliance announced that it’s installing six bottle-filling locations around the park this summer, replacing the current drinking fountains situated there. The locations are 6th Street and West Drive; Near Field One in the Long Meadow Ballfields; The Nethermead near Center Drive; Along the East Drive, across from the Peristyle; Near Field Six at the Parade Ground; and at the Center Drive and East Drive intersection. The location pictured above, at the Nethermead, is already up and running. The stations are there to encourage park goers to carry reusable bottles as well as reduce the consumption of plastic water bottles. Check out a map of all the locations over at the Prospect Park Alliance website.

The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is listed as the owner on the permit. The vacant lot has been city-owned since the late ’70s, according to public records. The SLCE-designed development between Dean and Bergen streets will include 80 apartments […]
