Highland Park - Ridgewood Reservoir Community Meeting

The following event is organized and sponsored by NYC H2O.

Tuesday April 19 at 7pm
PS 89, 265 Warwick Street, Brooklyn
Child care will be provided (sign up here)

Please join us on Tuesday April 19th. We look forward to your participation in the envisioning of an exciting new future for Highland Park's historic Ridgewood Reservoir. NYC H2O and its collaborating organizations are actively seeking input from community members to discuss future possibilities as well as present challenges around the Reservoir. The currently underutilized Reservoir has the potential to become a center for nature that will contribute to community involvement for years to come.

NYC H2O is a water ecology organization that provides school groups with free field trips to parks and reservoirs. Over the last two years it has taken over 800 students to the Ridgewood Reservoir. This second listening meeting is being organized with the following community organizations: Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation, Arts East NY, East NY Farms, North Brooklyn YMCA, Highland Park Ridgewood Reservoir Association, Community Board 5 Brooklyn, Community Board 4 Brooklyn, Community Board 5 Queens, the Brooklyn Borough President's Office, and the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Let's come together to discuss a unique ecological resource for Brooklyn and Queens local residents. Let's create better and safer access to the Reservoir to help realize its full potential as a natural asset to the many communities that use Highland Park.
