The New York City Parks Department opened a 5 ½ acre waterfront park near Borden Avenue last Tuesday.
The park, which is called Hunters Point South Waterfront Park, includes a large lawn, a new dog run, playground equipment and dedicated bicycle lanes.
The 5 ½ park will be expanded another 6 acres when the park goes all the way down to Newtown Creek.
The city will officially have a ribbon cutting on Wednesday at 10 am.
The park is part of the Hunters Point South development, which will include 5,000 units of affordable housing.
