A “plastic park” would be an abomination against nature. A botanical garden or natural park would honour its namesake.

A plastic park is wrong. A concrete park is wrong. The state has misused Marsha P. Johnson's name to front for this inhuman design.

Thanks for adding your voice.

More green areas for this community. We have the worst park per capta ratio in NYC. We need more parks. We need them to be green. Stop the concrete!

Everyone in Brooklyn wants and deserves more green space. We can have better health, learn about growing plants and flowers, play in the dirt, and enjoy nature like everyone is supposed to do for better health and wants to do more of after this past year. ❤️

Thanks for adding your voice.

We have an obligation to be far more conscious of how the design of a park revival can (and will) impact the local ecosystem, as well as listening to the LGBTQIA+ community in a more genuine fashion. This cannot be about virtue signaling.

Thanks for adding your voice.

As a retired ArchitectI have looked at the atrocious rendering of a “Plastic Park” named for a local activist, Marsha P. Designed by a firm with no credentials as landscape architects . With no Public or even Marsha’s family input. All hidden from view, suddenly closed with chain link fencing and to everyone’ surprise, construction started, illegally in my option, 3 days later. I understand that there was a community outcry and construction stopped. This project should be redesigned by a competent registered landscape architect that would create an actual Park than paint in horrid colors a huge slab of concrete draining into the East River.
