Nine years after local residents began advocating for the renovation of Luther Gulick Park, the Parks Department is finally ready to put the project out for bid.
According to the grass roots organization, Friends of Gulick Park, the project will be posted next month. “If all goes well,” a message on the group’s Facebook page, notes, “a contractor will be selected by March, construction will begin in the fall and we will have a new park by 2020.”
Following a lengthy community visioning process, the Parks Department unveiled final revamp plans in 2014. You can see the renderings here. Workers have already begun to construct new bathrooms, which hopefully will be finished sooner.
Gulick Park is located just south of Delancey Street at Willett Street.
