Rendering South Park Comfort Station designed by Sage and Coombe Architects

In August 2016, as part of the Anchor Parks Initiative, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito, and NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver announced the City would invest $30 million in Freshkills Park’s South Park.

NYC Parks hosted a public visioning session, hired a design team and began work on concept plans that were informed by community input.  The plans include two multi-purpose fields and trails, vehicular and pedestrian access, pedestrian connections to the Owl Hollow Soccer Fields, parking and a public restroom building and plaza. A green roof will be constructed on top of the public restroom building.

The design is close to completion as DPR awaits the approval of several permits and Engineering Reports required by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
