Master Plan for Van Cortlandt Park

NYC Parks recently finalized a comprehensive Van Cortlandt Park Master Plan that will guide the restoration of Van Cortlandt Park’s natural beauty and provide solutions for the needs of all neighboring communities. The Master Plan charts clear courses of action to restore and improve this unique property.  The Master Plan is intended to coordinate efforts over the next twenty years between agencies, nonprofit partners, elected officials and community groups to complete capital projects in Van Cortlandt Park.  The Friends of Van Cortlandt Park look forward to helping to implement projects in this plan over the next 20 years.
