Newtown Creek Vision Plan

Over the past year, NCA worked closely with our partners at Riverkeeper and Perkins+Will to create the Newtown Creek Vision plan, a 150 page report chronicling priority issues and 85 proposed projects to address Remediation, Restoration, Recreation and Resilience. The report builds upon decades of planning and visioning efforts by numerous community members and organizations; framing ideas in the wake of upcoming Superfund remediation and Clean Water improvements. We look forward to continuing these planning conversations with local residents, businesses, agencies and elected officials.

Finally, it’s happening! Signs up signifying the start of phase 2 of the Newtown Creek Nature Walk. This walkway over the water will connect with another upland park section by Kingsland Avenue known as phase 3. Both sections are scheduled to be complete in 2020.

Phase 1 of the park has been open since 2007 and currently dead ends at Whale Creek. We are very excited to someday soon have this long awaited public space and continuous path completed! Much thanks to the Newtown Creek Monitoring Committee members, designer George Trakas and all those at NYC Water who have worked on this project over the years.
