Prospect Park Alliance Details $60 Million Project


At the Community Board 6 meeting on Wednesday night, the head of the Prospect Park Alliance, Tupper Thomas, fleshed out some of the details of an exciting new project called Lakeside Center. Slated to cost $60 million, the 18-month effort will re-landscape 26 acres of parkland from the intersection of Parkside and Ocean Avenues to Lincoln Road and Breeze Hill; a skating rink next to the existing Wollman rink and an area dedicated to roller-skating. The Alliance currently has about half of the required funds lined up. In addition to the embarking on the Lakeside project, the Alliance plans a $1.8 million refurbishment of the Vanderbilt Playground, a pet project of Councilman DeBlasio. The Parade Ground is also getting a tune-up and new bathrooms added.
