Action Alert: Support Better Bike and Pedestrian Access to our New Parks!

Show your support for better bicycle and pedestrian access to our new parks at two upcoming Community Board meetings

Our major successes on the southern Bronx River are our new parks, particularly Hunts Point Riverside Park, Concrete Plant Park, and Starlight Park (opening soon!). As wonderful as these new parks are, access to them is poor.

We have been working with NYCDOT for several years to develop improvements that would make it easier to bike and walk to these new parks. DOT has prepared formal recommendations and will be presenting them to Community Boards 2 and 9 next week.

Please come and show your support for these improvements at these Community Board meetings! These improvements will enable more and more folks of all ages and abilities to access the wonderful new parks along the Bronx River Greenway.

To learn more about why these improvements are so important, watch a great video prepared by the Bronx River Greenway Team, Boogie Down Rides, Bike the Bronx, and Transportation Alternatives. And join us at these upcoming meetings!

Community Board 9, Public Service & Housing Committee
Date: Tuesday, January 15
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: 1967 Turnbull Avenue, 2nd Floor, Room 7, Bronx, NY

Community Board 2, Municipal Services Committee
Date: Wednesday, January 16
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: 1029 East 163rd Street, Bronx, NY

Our new parks are beautiful and great for biking and walking

But access roads like this one (the on-ramp to the Sheridan Expressway
from Westchester Ave) make them difficult to access!
