Reconstruction of Central Park’s North End to Begin this Spring

The reconstruction of Central Park’s north end is set to begin this spring, with some slight changes from the previous plan, Patch first reported.

As we wrote in our last article about this project, the Lasker Rink and Pool will be fully replaced, boardwalks and marshlands will be expanded, and new facilities will be designed to more naturally fit into the park landscape.

New designs include some slight adjustments to the boardwalk and pool deck, Patch writes. The Central Park Conservancy has released some new renderings.

As we previously wrote, a new building housing the rink and pool will be constructed in the ground and will feature a green roof to blend into the park more seamlessly. The building will also feature space for public gatherings and amenities.
