Asphalt Green to Open by June 15

asphalt green 12913Big news from the Battery Park City Authority: “At today’s Board meeting of the Battery Park City Authority, Chairman & CEO Dennis Mehiel announced milestones on two major projects in the continued recovery from impacts of superstorm Sandy. The total turf replacement of the multi-sport Ball Fields has been completed. Mr. Mehiel signed the first public use permit—the Opening Day ceremony for the Downtown Little League on Sunday, April 7. In addition, the Board approved an amendment to the agreement for Asphalt Green to operate the sports and fitness facility. Remediation work has reached a stage where BPCA is confident Asphalt Green can open its eagerly anticipated youth summer camp June 27 and welcome members to the facility by June 15.”

And Asphalt Green’s Summer Day Camp is slated to start June 27.

UPDATE: Asphalt Green sent out an email that said this: “An official opening date will be announced no later than May 1st with the expectation to open the facility to members and the public by mid-June.” That can be read as hedging (“expectation”), or the possibility that it’ll open even sooner.
