W’s redesign of Shoelace Park in the Bronx is now partially open! In the next few weeks, two out of three construction phases will be open to the public to use and enjoy. W worked with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, the Bronx River Alliance, and the community to redesign the former roadbed so it becomes part of the Bronx River Greenway. The 1.2 mile stretch will receive new bike paths, site furnishings, entry plazas, custom painted pavement patterns, dozens of new trees, rain gardens, wayfinding signage, and drinking fountains. Permeability will be greatly increased because of the added plantings and reduced pavement area.
We are proud to be able to share these improvements with the community! We look forward to the entire project being open later this fall.Share on Facebook
