Bayswater Park Picnic Area and Mural Takes Shape #JamaicaBay #FarRockaway

Thanks to dozens of volunteers from the Rockaways and beyond, the Jamaica Bay-theme mural at Bayswater Park is taking shape! Volunteers helped artist Ruth Hofheimer, the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy (JBRPC) and the Natural Areas Conservancy (NAC) over two days to bring this wonderful mural to life. Working with NYC Parks, JBRPC and NAC also welcomed new barbecues and picnic benches to the park. A formal ribbon cutting will take place Wednesday, July 26 at 1pm.
