Phase I of Bushwick Inlet Park officially opened yesterday and outgoing Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz was on hand to cut the ribbon. The soccer field, above, has been open for a while, but now the award-winning community facility building with a green roof, a new playground, and access to the waterfront are open. The green space, which was expected to open in March, is a slice of the 28-acre park promised in exchange for the 2005 Williamsburg rezoning. Click through to the jump to see a photo from yesterday’s ceremony.
