The Hunters Point Parks Conservancy is inviting the community to attend its monthly meeting tomorrow, where the expansion of the park and its programming will be discussed.
The public meeting will begin at 7 pm at the New York Irish Center, located at 1040 Jackson Ave.
Representatives from the city’s Economic Development Corporation will provide an update on Phase 2 of Hunters Point South Park, the 5.5 acre section of the waterfront park below 54th Avenue and wrapping around the Newtown Creek, according to Rob Basch, HPPC President.
The EDC said in March that the new section is expected to open in the late spring or early summer, and that it is working with NYC Parks on finalizing the opening day.
The HPPC will also announce the majority of its summer programming schedule. Events seen in past years included film screenings, gardening, silent disco, and live music. The events this season also come after the group launched their first survey directly asking the public for their input on activities. Movies, music, and yoga were ranked among the most desired activities.
