During a recent meeting with the Community Board 14 Parks committee and representatives of the Parks and Recreation Department, residents from Rockaway Park and Rockaway Beach expressed concern about a rumor that showers would be installed on the boardwalk.

While the rumor of a shower on Beach 118 Street has proven to be untrue, the Parks Department has provided The Wave with a preliminary list of proposed shower sites.

“We don’t have a finalized list yet,” Zachary Feder, a representative for Parks, said in an e-mail.

He called the list below “preliminary” and added that “this could be changed.”

The proposed locations are:

1. Beach 74 Street, Concrete boardwalk. RPZ, Foot Shower, Drinking Fountain, On the Beach side;

2. Beach 80 Street, Concrete boardwalk. Foot Shower with tapping into existing line, On the beach side;

3. Beach 93 Street. Wooden boardwalk. RPZ, Foot Show er, Drinking Fountain On the Beach side;

4. Beach 102 Street.Wooden boardwalk. Foot Shower,

Drinking Fountain. Beach side;

5. Beach 108 Street. Wooden boardwalk.Beachside;

6. Beach 120 Street. Wooden boardwalk. RPZ, Foot Shower, Drinking Fountain.

Beach side;

7. Beach 126 Street. Wooden boardwalk. RPZ, Foot Shower, Drinking Fountain.

Beach side.

After almost two years of construction, more than $30 million spent by the city, and vandalism that delayed its opening, the ribbon was cut Monday on the two new parks in Far Rockaway.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe were joined by Councilman James Sanders Jr., Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder, and Community Board 14 District Manager Jonathan Gaska at the site of Far Rockaway West Park on Beach 29 Street to officially open it and Far Rockaway East Park on Beach 15 Street and Seagirt Boulevard. The skateboard park between Beach 13 and Beach 11 Streets opened last October and several weeks ago the rest of the park on Seagirt Boulevard was opened, which included the stage, water fun for the kids, and play and picnic areas.
