Kings County (Brooklyn) - The City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Clavert Vaux Park Reconstruction will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation's proposal to improve the existing recreational facilities at Calvert Vaux Park (formerly known as Dreier Offerman Park) and reprogram park amenities. The proposed improvements to the park would preserve the layout of the efficiently designed portions of the existing park, and make more efficient those which are not. It would result in a park that has an area dedicated to active recreation, a natural area, and an area dedicated to passive recreation. The Proposed Action would include the renovation of existing recreational fields, the addition of new field amenities such as bleachers and field lighting for one of the soccer fields, the creation of a formalized parking lot, great lawn, dedicated model helicopter area, picnic area, amphitheater, playground, comfort station, field house and nature center, two new pedestrian bridges over a drainage swale, utility improvements, and a pedestrian and bicycle pathway network. The proposed project would also include remediation of existing contamination on site. The proposed project would also advance a PlaNYC initiative of improving Calvert Vaux Park, a regional park. The project is located at 2000 Shore Parkway Service Road South bounded by the Belt/Shore Parkway to the northeast, Bay 44th Street to the northwest, Gravesend Bay to the southwest in the Gravesend / Bensonhurst / Coney Island community of Kings County, New York.
