Marine Park, Brooklyn
Marine Park Trail Restoration and
Community Engagement Project
The Natural Areas Conservancy and The Nature Conservancy invite you to attend a meeting Monday, September 21 to discuss trail restoration opportunities in Marine Park, Brooklyn’s largest park. We are working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and in partnership with the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy.
Project goals include making the park trails easier to navigate and better conserving its natural history. To improve park user’s experience in the maritime forest (one of only two in New York City) along the park’s western edge, we are planning to establish a marked loop trail. Most of the new trail will consist of existing paths, and some parts will be restored to be natural habitats. Research from the Natural Areas Conservancy’s recent biodiversity study of New York City’s parks will be used to guide this ecological restoration.
Save the Date: NYC Parks’ citywide stewardship day is on October 24. The Natural Areas Conservancy and friends will be volunteering in Marine Park, 9 am – 1 pm. To sign up and see more details, visit NYC Parks Stewardship website.
