Van Cortlandt Park’s physical and human landscape has evolved over thousands of years. This 1,146–acre park, the third largest in New York City, offers real connections to the region’s geologic and cultural history. Through the lens of Van Cortlandt Park, one can learn about the natural world while gaining insight into how infrastructure develops as a city grows and changes.
A huge thank you to the hundreds of people who helped with the creation of this comprehensive plan for the park. It was a two-year process amd well worth the efforts of all to compile ideas for the park's future.
Elected officials have already responded and are starting to fund the projects in this plan. This is a great start in achieving the goals of this plan over the next 20 years!
