Renovated Rockaway Beach Park to be Unveiled
Several other enhancements have been made to the park in Far Rockaway, including transforming a large asphalt parking lot near Beach 19th Street into a lawn.
New trees have also been planted, and several enhancements and protections have been made to the area's sand dunes.
In addition, a new comfort station will be unveiled at the Beach 30th Street pavilion, which now features stone-shaped seats and a large white roof that the architect, WXY Architecture and Urban Design, says is reminiscent of gull wings and rippling fabrics.
The Parks Department says that an official ribbon-cutting will be held, but no official date has been set.
