Open Our Park at 50 Kent!

Recent news

A **PARTIAL** VICTORY

Less than 24 hours after this petition launched the Parks Department announced that they would be opening 50 Kent beginning July 9th Thursdays through Sundays from 10am-6pm. This is a good start but hardly enough. This community should not have to wait 3 weeks for access to our open space. This community should have access to our park beyond the hottest part of the day. Additionally the Parks Department included no plan to open up North 12th Street from Kent Avenue to the East River giving the community a safe street on our waterfront to bike, jog, and gather.

Even though this response from Parks is insufficient it shows us that they cannot ignore the voices of this community. Continue speaking out. Continue sharing this petition. Don't stop.
