This is a new rendering of the proposed Sponge Park along the Gowanus Canal. We have no idea what it's realistic plans are given that it would require a lot of privately-held property for which developers may have other plans. On the other hand, the Gowanus rezoning proposal would require an esplanade on both sides of the canal (when developers build). Regardless, the rendering does show what would appear to be sponge type plants in Sponge Park. It's called Sponge Park because the park itself is supposed to help keep the environmentally-challenged Gowanus clean. The design is from dlandstudio, which is also doing the Brooklyn Bridge Pop-Up Park.
