SCAPE and the Gowanus Canal Conservancy Launch: The Gowanus Lowlands

Jun 16, 2017

Mobilizing around the major changes surfacing in Gowanus, the Gowanus Canal Conservancy announces the unveiling of Gowanus Lowlands: A Blueprint for NYC’s Next Great Park on June 19th at the Bell House, in Brooklyn.

Gowanus Lowlands envisions a network of parks and public spaces centered on the Gowanus Canal and connected to its surrounding watershed. A vibrant system that prioritizes access for everyone, the Lowlands will shine a light on the canal’s history and singular beauty against a backdrop of a healthy environment and safe, connected streets. Residents, workers and visitors will be able to fully engage with all Gowanus has to offer, from its native plants and wildlife, to its thriving industry, to its hidden creeks and hypnotic waterway.
