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. Although a work in progress, groups like Rock the Boat utilize the park to launch kayaks and canoes and educate local children about local environmental issues. Parks’ Natural Resources Group has done a fine job cleaning up the formerly abandoned land and installing native wetland plants along sections of the Bronx River shoreline to re-establish the native habitat.
