Share Your Ideas For Astoria Park’s $30M Allocation

The Parks Department is holding a workshop about Astoria Park, as part of the Mayor’s Anchor Park program. Share Your Ideas for Astoria Park on Wednesday, November 16th, from 7 pm to 9 pm at Bohemian Hall, 29-19 24th Ave., in Astoria. As one of New York City’s five Anchor Parks, Astoria Park will be receiving $30 million for major improvements and the City wants your input. Anchor Parks is a new program that will provide funding to five large parks that serve as centers of activity for the surrounding neighborhoods.

Council Member Costa Constantinides said, “The Anchor Park $30 million investment for Astoria Park will transform our neighborhood’s vital greenspace. The funding will bring historic improvements to the playing fields, playgrounds, and lawns. This workshop is an opportunity for residents to share their ideas on how the $30 million allocation can improve the park’s use of space to benefit all Astorians. It is also an integral first step in the capital project process – the design and construction phases will not begin until after public input is heard. We encourage our community to bring friends, and to spread the word about this workshop. We look forward to hearing everyone’s ideas. I thank the Parks Department and Mayor de Blasio for their partnership on this historic allocation.”

Meetings will include refreshments, kids’ activities, and Spanish translators. For more information or to request accessibility accommodations, contact Joanne Amagrande by November 13th at 718-520-5905, or email : joanne.amagrande@parks.nyc.gov.
