New East End Park Almost Ready For Its Close-Up



Get ready for the unveiling of large portions of the new park being built by the city in Far Rockaway. A skate park, a bouldering wall, and new basketball and handball courts are just some of the attractions that are part of the new Far Rockaway East Park on Seagirt Boulevard. With construction speeding along, these attractions, which include a parking lot, could be open as soon as October. Picnic grounds, water play and stage areas, along with a second parking lot should be ready sometime next year, Parks Department officials say. For more photos, see page 46.
