Park Push - Brooklyn Paper

Park Push

Mayor Bloomberg announced on Wednesday plans to finally do something with long-ignored Dreier-Offerman Park in Gravesend.

The $40–million restoration of the 77-acre park will include the construction of three new baseball fields, six new soccer fields, kayak launches, picnic areas, a bicycle path and a nature trail. The park will also get a new amphitheater, a children’s playground, a recreation center, new restrooms and pavilion.

At right, Bloomberg is joined by Coney Island Councilman Domenic Recchia and Bay Ridge state Sen. Marty Golden.
