RED HOOK — Red Hook’s Coffey Park is getting a $2.3 million renovation that will begin in a few weeks, officials said.
The project will include reconstruction of the northern half of the park and a reconfiguration of the central plaza to help organize the winding path system, a spokeswoman from the city’s Park Department said.
New seating, picnic spots, benches, two new drinking fountains and barbeque areas with grills, coal receptacles and tables will also be installed at the park, which is bordered by Verona, Richards and Dwight streets.
The park's garden areas will see new plantings and the current water service will be reconstructed to include ground hydrants to water green areas, officials say.
The renovation should be completed in early 2015, the New York Daily News first reported.
Total funding for the project is $2,320,00 with $1,950,000 from the City Council and $370,000 from the mayor's office, according to the spokeswoman.
