The concession stand at Broderick Park is getting a much needed makeover. The building that you see here, formerly a food shack bunker that commanded the site, will soon be home to an interpretive center with washrooms and concessions (see Master Plans for the site).
When the concession building is complete, this will be a formidable venue for outdoor concerts and plays on the waterfront, especially now that The City is making another significant investment at the corner of West Ferry and Niagara Street (see here).
Earlier this year work was completed on the amphitheater (see here) at the park. Combined with a new picnic shelter, plantings, reconfigured parking lots and historical elements (Underground Railroad), it looks as if things are shaping up nicely for this section of the city’s waterfront.
