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.
