West Thames playground meet
Residents will be able to discuss plans for the West Thames Park construction with the park’s project team this weekend, as part of a daylong event held in the current park.
Officials from the Community Board 1 Battery Park City Working Group and the state Dept. of Transportation’s Route 9A project team will be available for questions in the park at W. Thames and West Sts. on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine. The park’s design has received overwhelming support from Community Board 1.
Construction is expected to begin in October and the playground will be closed until about May, when the project is scheduled to be finished. Half the dog run will be able to remain open. There will be another question-and-answer meeting in the park on September 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
