West Thames Park Construction

02/24/2010 in

Construction is progressing at West Thames Park in Battery Park City. The park, located on West St (9A) between West Thames and Albany Sts closed in October and is currently scheduled to reopen in May. Construction crews began the work by removing the old “Tire Swing Park” and all of the trees in the project area. The new park will include age-restricted playgrounds, an 11,500 square-foot lawn, a community garden and a dog run (dog run will remain open during construction).
