MITCHELL PARK
LOCATION / GREENPORT, NY
PHASE / COMPLETED 2001
SIZE / 5 ACRES

Mitchell Park is the locus of the revitalization of a historic seaport on the North Fork of Long Island. In 1996 the Village of Greenport embarked on a 9 year campaign to revitalize public, commercial and recreational infrastructure, transforming the Village from a state of convalescence to a place with impetus for change. Mitchell Park is the nucleus of this program which evolved from the acquisition of private parcels with the assistance of state and local agencies.The project intent is to activate and build upon existing transportation and commercial infrastructure through a mesh of recreational pavilions and utilitarian amenities. The 5-acre site spans from the last L.I.R.R. station on the North Fork and Shelter Island Ferry terminal at the west, to the public marina and commercial zone to the east.
