Mountains of Soil at Brooklyn's Walt Whitman Park

The Park's Department has trucked in tons of new soil for the $4.5 million reconstruction of Walt Whitman Park in Downtown Brooklyn (next to the Office of Emergency Management on Cadman Plaza East).

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, the Department of Parks’ design will include a “great lawn,” and an ornamental fountain that will double as a sprinkler for children. Four Walt Whitman poems will be engraved in granite on the sides of the fountain."
