Over the weekend, the much anticipated Bush Terminal Park opened in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. The park is located on a former brownfield site that stretches from 43rd to 51st Street on the south Brooklyn waterfront. Along with terrific views of Lower Manhattan and New Jersey, the park also offers visitors: two soccer and baseball fields, tidal wetlands, a sloping lawn, a wooded area, harbor view points, walkways, and a sustainable comfort station. The community has been waiting for the completion of the park for several years and it looks to be worth the wait.
Landscape Architects: AECOM, Adrian Smith Landscape Architects; Architecture (Comfort Station): Turett Collaborative Architecture; Program: Park; Location: Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NY; Completion: 2014.
