Help us create a new vision for Shoelace Park and Fort Knox on the Bronx River Greenway - we need to hear from you!
Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, P.C. has worked with the Bronx River
Alliance, the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and local
communities to develop a master plan for Shoelace Park and Fort Knox-also
known as Bronx Park or Bronx River Park - that will enable us to raise
resources for future improvements in these parks.

for maps and photos of Shoelace Park and Fort
Knox - a one-mile ribbon of parkland along the Bronx River extending from
East 233rd Street to Duncomb Avenue in the Williamsbridge section of the
North Bronx, just east of the Bronx River Parkway.
We have already started working with a Youth Design Team from the North
Bronx. Click on Community

teenagers and designers from the first "charrette" or workshop at The Learning
Tree School. We also convened the first community design charrette on April 7.
