The design for the new park provides for numerous active and passive activities in formal and informal settings. A sinuous red ribbon creates a walking path to connect these activities and provides access to the river via ferries, the city bicycle network, pedestrian walkways, and kayaks. ©Josh Simpson

The scope of Mill Pond Park reflects the City’s commitment to provide replacement tennis courts, parkland acres and recreational facilities for the community. Tennis courts are open-air in the summer and covered in winter. The Power House is a National Register eligible structure that is adapted for reuse for the future Bronx Children’s Museum.
