Highbridge Park Visioning Meeting -- November 28, 6:30 PM

The City of New York has designated Highbridge Park as one of five Anchor Parks for the city
In an effort to meet that objective, NYC Parks is investing an additional $30 million to further 
transform Highbridge Park. Large parks are important because of the variety of things they 
offer your neighborhood.  The fields, play areas, natural features, and many other amenities 
help to "anchor" neighborhoods.

New York City Parks is making big decisions about Highbridge Park and wants you to be a 
part of shaping your park's future.  Please attend the community visioning meeting!

WHEN: Monday, November 28, 2016 6:30 p.m.8:30 p.m.

WHERE: Highbridge Recreation Center in Highbridge Park

2301 Amsterdam Avenue (at 173rd St.)

COST:  Free  

EVENT ORGANIZER: NYC Parks Community Input Sessions


  1. This is great - will the High Bridge itself be under discussion? I would love to see it open 24/7/365. It's a public transportation (bike/walk) corridor linking the BX and Manhattan - closing it every night is unfair to walkers and bike riders as there are no other non-car crossings.

  2. The basis for the planning is to connect the north and south sections of High Bridge Park. It is split at the aqueduct and you have to go out of the park to get around this break. This is an amazing financial windfall we will be planning for. Lots more history that maybe uncovered as part of this renovation. See you Monday night.
