Overview

In late 1999, Bell Tower Park was named a Greenstreets site. Greenstreets is a joint project of Parks and the New York City Department of Transportation begun in 1986 and revived in 1994. Its goal is to convert paved street properties, such as triangles and malls, into green spaces. Greenstreets-funded renovations at Bell Tower Park include the addition of new bluestone and granite block pavement, World's Fair benches, and new plantings, including bluebeard, inkberry, lowboy firethorn, and little princess spirea, around the tower. Bell Tower Park is also the site of such seasonal festivities as a Memorial Day ceremony and an annual Christmas tree lighting. During Hanukkah, the Park is the home of the largest menorah in the Bronx. With its stately tower and surrounding greenery, Bell Tower Park is an historic oasis standing prominently at the intersection of several major thoroughfares.
