Closing Bell: More Good News for LIC Parks


    The Hunters Point South Park officially opens tomorrow, and the Queensbridge Park is getting another facelift! Today the Queens Courier reports that Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer secured $2.5 million in funding to fully renovate and restore the park house there. According to the Courier, “The Parks Department hopes to construct a new facility that will feature a modern comfort station, storage space for sports teams using the playfields and an office for Parks Department staff.” Earlier this summer the Parks Department broke ground on a $6.65 million restoration project for the Queensbridge Park Seawall. The project, wapping next summer, will feature a waterfront promenade and a small pier at the north end of the park.
