Soundview Park Restoration Scheme Wrapped Up

Under cloudy skies on a rain soaked October 16th, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Soundview Park in the Bronx, New York City celebrating the completion of a $9 million Marsh Ecosystem Restoration Project that was made possible through a cost sharing partnership of federal, state and local agencies. 

The rainy weather seemed fitting for a project that contributes to improved water quality by increasing the area of functional salt marsh.

The 205-acre park is located in the south central section of the borough that lines a one and one half mile area along the Bronx River. The site was previously used as a landfill that originally consisted of salt marsh, open water, upland meadows and oak-hickory forests.

The Corps began construction in 2011, in collaboration with New York City Parks. The project restored aquatic ecosystem resources and adjacent upland habitat in southern Southview Park.

This contributes to improved water quality by increasing the area of functional salt marsh that removes nutrients from the water column, traps sediment, and provides habitat for wetland dependent fish and wildlife.
