The small, triangular BAM Park in Fort Greene, opposite the famed Brooklyn Academy of Music, has been closed to the public for more than a decade, partially because of contaminants found in the soil.

However, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership announced that work is officially underway on the park’s $3.2 million reconstruction, according to Curbed.

The redesigned park will include new plantings, benches and pathways while preserving most of the trees that are already there, Curbed reported. The fence around the park will be removed, and a raised concrete deck will include additional seating.

Regina Myers, president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership said,  “This project will deliver much-needed green space for residents, workers and visitors in Downtown Brooklyn as it develops into a true mixed-use neighborhood.”
