Since You Asked: Flowers Park, New Rochelle

We have received three inquiries about what they’re building over at Flowers (City) Park on Fifth Avenue in New Rochelle (across the street from Ethnika.)

We had heard an ice skating rink was going in. Maybe. But look at what is! Parks Commissioner William Zimmerman tells us,

“Flowers (City) park is in the third phase of a $10 million dollar improvement project funded by a county legacy grant. It includes 4 new ball fields with lights, 3 synthetic and 1 natural turf, a new playground with a splash pad interactive spray feature, basketball court, walking trails, new comfort station restrooms, stream remediation, a storm water drainage system that collects water to be released once storm drains are clear, a new parking lot to serve the east end of the remodeled park and overall park landscaping.
