The Parks Department misrepresented the health of the 58 mature trees marked for removal -- a total of 71 trees will be endangered, including an additional 13 due to extreme pruning and adjacent excavation under their Parks Without Borders redesign plan.

We welcome an influx of money that would preserve, restore and enhance current and historic park features. NYC Parks are supposed to be stewards of these publicly owned spaces and residents expect them to implement community input and maintain the character of our neighborhood park.

Fort Greene residents say NO to Parks Without Borders redesign of the Park; NO to cutting down healthy trees and eliminating shade; NO to dismantling historic features; NO to concrete instead of green.

NYC Parks without Borders plans to turn the beloved A.E. Bye design into a paved plaza.

Residents demand NYC Parks Without Borders take community input into consideration.

In an effort to preserve the legacy and sense of community of Fort Greene Park that its designer, Frederick Law Olmsted, and those who followed left to us.
