    The $1.5 million project, formerly known as Pier 53, will serve as the northern anchor of a wetlands park and recreational trail system, running south to Pier 68, a $1.7 million project that's currently under construction and expected to open in mid-2015.

    The park's design highlights its history as a shipbuilding center, port-of-entry and naturalized finger pier.. Read more about highlights of the new pier on
