There was a presentation in Carroll Gardens by the Gowanus Canal Conservancy last night to show off the design for a proposed "Sponge Park" that would along the shores of the Gowanus . The park design comes from dlandstudio and "would be aesthetically beautiful while working to reduce the problem of contaminated water flowing into the Gowanus Canal. The plan proposes a continuous esplanade running the length of the canal (and extending into the neighborhood at certain points) and designs for the publicly-owned street ends and bridge crossings that would connect to this walkway." The park time frame is nearly a decade.
