  • Lighting
  • Dogs off-leash area (fenced)
  • Water bottle-filler with pet drinking fountain
  • An accessible path with custom pavement markings
  • Various seating options, including benches, wood platform seats, loungers and accessible picnic tables
  • An open lawn
  • Meadow plantings and shrubs
  • Widened sidewalks on some section of Geary Avenue (in areas without existing trees)
  • New trees along street

Geary Avenue Park Expansion will transform a segment of the hydro corridor running parallel to Geary Avenue between Delaware Avenue and Westmoreland Avenue into new park space. Streetscape improvements will link the expanded Geary Avenue Park to the existing Barlett Parkette at Salem Avenue.

Geary Avenue Park Expansion builds on the conceptual master plan design guidelines established through community consultation for the Green Line Implementation Plan.
