About the Project:

Hunts Point Landing provides vital public open space and access to the South Bronx shoreline at the convergence of the East and Bronx Rivers. Winning two stars as a pilot project for SITES™, this waterfront park is a model of sustainable design. The design reestablished the original gentle wetland shoreline and creates two inter-tidal marshes and a fresh water filtration pool that captures all on site stormwater. The park is a wonderful place to relax, fish, kayak and picnic and is easily reached via our greenway system linking neighborhoods of the South Bronx to the waterfront.
