This past winter, an ivy bed that flourished on the north side of the park for over 50 years was damaged beyond repair. Instead of re-planting the bed from scratch, we decided to recreate the space to use in a completely new and different way.
The damaged ivy bed.
The same area, after pulling out the ivy, laying a foundation topped with gravel, and adding some flowers and greenery. It’s all ready for well, that part is a surprise.
We're working with a very special club in NYC to bring a brand new activity to BP. It’s something you’ve never seen before in the park and complete with state-of-the-art equipment, we’ll be debuting the mystery activity in late May. That's all we can give away for now. Can’t wait until the end of the month? Check out the new gravel bed on the 42nd Street side of the park near 6th Avenue and see if you can predict what we’ve got up our sleeves.
