The dock will be built by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation as a gateway to on-water access.
The MWA invites the Bay Ridge community to get involved in planning program activities at the dock.
Ideas already in play include:
- historic and educational boat trips for summer camps and community groups;
- walk-up kayaking events for experienced paddlers;
- community events such as City of Water Day boat tours;
- environmental education projects such as water quality monitoring and oyster gardening; and
- boat trips and cruises.
The dock could become a great new resource for groups offering youth education, on-water recreation, cultural tourism, waterway stewardship and protection, local economic development and maritime heritage.
