Overview

 

Brooklyn Bridge Park is an award-winning success story in environmental stewardship.  This former industrial waterfront on both sides of the Brooklyn Bridge was recently converted into a public outdoor recreation amenity with outstanding resiliency and sustainability features and a dramatic view of Manhattan. The tour will walk the length of the park and provide an overview of its design and construction through the eyes of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Cooperation, which has spearheaded this urban redevelopment project for the last 10 years. Current techniques and methods in park, waterfront, and environmental planning will be featured.

Learning objectives include:

 

  • Methods in current park planning and programming for active and passive recreation

  • Conversion of industrial waterfront to public uses

  • Planning for resiliency at the Federal, state  and local levels

  • Collaboration for success in today’s era of budget constraints
