Marine Park Community Center Model

The model is the new Marine Park Community Center for which ground is being broken today. Per a press release, it’s “the Parks Department’s first state-of-the-art Green Building. With solar panels, a geo-thermal heating and cooling system, and a planted roof, this building is an example of the City’s commitment to an environmentally-friendly 21st century.” The center will be named after Carmine Carro, the late President of the Marine Park Civic Association and will have multi-purpose rooms for recreation and community programs. It’s an $11 million project.
