Roosevelt Island Picnic Tables And BBQ Grills In Octagon Park Now Open After DEP Water Tunnel Access Road Fencing Removed Last Friday After Many Months Delay And Closed For More Than A Year

Last Friday May 17, after many months and delays, the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Water Tunnel Access Road fence

surrounding the Octagon Park picnic tables and BBQ Grills was removed

and the area opened up

for use.

The next day, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the Octagon Picnic Tables

and BBQ grills

were being enjoyed.

There is currently a fence blocking access to the waterfront promenade adjacent to the Octagon Building

during the repair of the seawall in the area.
