BGI’s Columbia Waterfront Park has received $500,000 in funding from Borough President Eric Adams, out of nearly $12 million allocated to parks across Brooklyn.
The park will be a brand new two-acre space along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway on Columbia Street between Kane and Degraw Streets. Additional funds are to be secured before construction can begin, however the first phase of the park commenced in Spring 2014 when BGI volunteers planted native grasses. In 2015 BGI volunteers completed further plantings and built a fence, and DOT installed bike racks and benches.
