Walt Whitman Park Shaping Up in Downtown Brooklyn

 The $4.5 million transformation of the 2.9-acre Walt Whitman Park in Downtown Brooklyn (next to the Office of Emergency Management on Cadman Plaza East) has entered it's fifth month.

The outlines of a planted median at the Cadman Plaza East entrance and an oval in the middle of the park can be seen.  The design also calls for more trees and an ornamental fountain that will double as a sprinkler for children. According to the Brooklyn Eagle, four Walt Whitman poems will be engraved in granite on the sides of the fountain.
