Two Ways to Support Pedestrian Bridge
In 1999, the New York City Council determined that NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) should build a Pedestrian Bridge if it was “feasible”. A feasibility study was conducted and determined that it was feasible but DEP has refused to pay for it. We are asking our community, our elected officials, and all those who love Van Cortlandt Park to join together and demand that DEP keep its promise to the Bronx. The Pedestrian Bridge is now a part of Van Cortlandt Park’s Master Plan. The time for action is now!
Sign our petition! Please sign this online petition asking the DEP to keep their promise and fund the Pedestrian Bridge
Come to our event! Join us on Saturday March 29th, 2014 and show the DEP and the NYC Council that the community supports this project. Help us demonstrate the need and desire for this bridge to be built.
Support the Friends
We rely on the support of our friends to continue our efforts to Bring Youth, Community and Nature Together in Van Cortlandt Park. Become a Friend Today! We have high hopes for the coming year and hope you will help us realize our goals. Together we can achieve so much.
Celebrating All That Was Accomplished!
