Hunts Point Landing is a new public open space located at the southern end of the Hunts Point peninsula, adjacent to the New Fulton Fish Market. Hunts Point Landing was created from a former street end that served as an informal fishing location, and will include a new fishing pier, a shoreline ecological restoration project, a kayak launch, and passive recreational areas. Located off of Food Center Drive, Hunts Point Landing will be accessible by bus and a network of pedestrian and bicycle pathways that are part of the overall South Bronx Greenway. Hunts Point Landing is approximately one acre and is scheduled to open in August 2012.
