NYC Green Infrastructure Longfellow Playground Now Open

McLaren recently provided site/civil services, green infrastructure (GI) design and a variety of stormwater management features for the newly opened Longfellow Playground in Hunts Point, Bronx. This project is part of a large $318 million NYC community parks renovation program, which aims to helps to restore and improve city parks. After a decade of being closed due to structural safety concerns, the Longfellow Playground was completely reconstructed, adding a play area with a tree house motif, mini stage, efficient spray showers with timers, new seating areas, bike racks, a new fence, lighting, landscaping, subsurface stabilization and greenery.
