Parks FAQ

What is a park?  A park is a place under the jurisdiction of the Parks Commissioner.

Does mapped parkland define a park?  Mapped parkland does not necessarily mean the property is a park.  Pier 5 was under the supervision of the Parks Department.  Central Park is under the supervision of the Parks Department.  Both Pier 5 are not mapped parkland.

Attached is a letter sent to the Parks Commissioner about just one of the problems with this project:
