The WNYC Transmitter park opened in Greenpoint on Saturday, allowing local residents the chance to finally enjoy the new waterfront park at the foot of Kent Street on the East River.

Greenpoint residents Sioban Donnelly, 34, and Scott Miller, 36, said that they had admired the park from behind a fence for the past several months.

“I wish the park had opened at the beginning of the summer,” Donnelly said, who stressed that there were not many parks in the area.

However, officials state that the 1.6-acre park was not ready until a few days ago due to the installation of safety railings last Thursday along the East River shoreline.

Officials also said that they are planning to work on future improvements for the park, such as extending the pier and creating signs that instruct owners to keep their dogs off the pavement.

Living just a few blocks away, Miller said now that the park is open, “we'll be coming out a lot.”
