Restorations start at Soundview Park, The Epoch Times

Restorations started on Monday in Soundview Park known as the “Gateway to the Bronx River”. The bulk of the work will consist in bringing back parts of the 205 acres of wetlands, lagoon and forest to life. At least 5,000 trees will be planted to recreate  the forest.

According to the WSJ, the wetlands will not only improve the quality of the water in the area but also provide habitat for birds and marine life.

Half of the estimated $10 million restoration plan was funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
