RIVERSIDE PARK SOUTH
ABB’s plans for expanded programming and improvements for the Phase 1 section of Riverside Side Park South include a new spliced steel column shade structure with a folded aluminum roof, as well as upgraded circulation designed to separate pedestrians and cyclists on the heavily used Manhattan bikeway. Existing basketball courts and handball walls were reconfigured to provide room for new park amenities under the Miller Highway, from 68th to 72nd Street: an informal children’s play area; new active recreation areas for adult park users; a street-style skating area, Parkour course, and batting cage. The project also reconstructs a natural turf soccer field (Field A).
