Concrete Plant Park is a public park in the Foxhurst section of the South Bronx, a neighborhood in New York City. It consists of 7.39 acres located on the west bank of the Bronx River between Westchester Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard.
Site of a concrete plant from the late 1940s through 1987, the land that is now Concrete Plant Park was acquired by Parks in 2000. In close partnership with community organizations and public agencies, the Parks Department and the Bronx River Alliance began the revitalization of this formerly abandoned site through re-establishing salt marshes on the riverbank once strewn with trash and tires, as well as reintroducing the public to the site through organizing community festivals and leading hundreds of residents out on the Bronx river to canoe and kayak.
The waterfront park, completed in September 2009, contains facilities supporting and linking existing and planned multi–use pedestrian greenways with other off–road, on-road bicycle/pedestrian routes. Construction of a new canoe/kayak launch provides an access point to the Bronx River Corridor along the park’s shoreline. The park was also enhanced through the creation of a waterfront promenade, a reading circle, and inviting park entrances at both Westchester Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard.
