Bushwick Inlet Park along the Williamsburg waterfront just got a nice infusion of funds.

The city has put $17.5 million toward developing a pair of sites along the Brooklyn waterfront that will bring the 28-acre park closer to completion, according to Curbed.

About $7.7 million of the funds will go toward building a new park at 50 Kent Avenue, and the rest will go to remediation efforts and developing additional park space at the Inlet’s Motiva site—the land strip around the Inlet itself.

The park runs along Kent Avenue from North 14th Street to North 9th Street, and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration agreed to purchase the final section late last year for $160 million.

A total of 3.5 acres of the park have been developed so far, including a multipurpose field and a building for community events. The two additional sites will add 3.6 more acres to the park, and the city will begin the design process in spring 2018 with public meetings. [Curbed]Eddie Small
