Although not recognized as the official park renderings (yet), the latest placeholder for the upcoming Broderick Park public meeting has come through. I would imagine that this is the rendering that we will most likely see unveiled at the meeting as the initial direction that design firm Trowbridge, Wolf and Michaels Landscape Architects LLP is heading.
You will note that although there are some similarities to the previous released designs (seen here), and there is now a vehicular ‘turn around’ feature that is similar to the sort of thing that we see at the end of the Erie Basin Marina. You will also notice that that parking spaces have been moved away from the river on the left hand side of the rendering. No matter where the parking spots are positioned, unless there is stepped up security at the park they will be used for illicit activity… and that is a major concern presented by BRO readers. It’s the same issue that LaSalle Park faces. If the general public is going to be using these park amenities, they must be kept clean and safe.
Don’t forget about the Bird Island Pier!
