Coney Island's 26-acre Kaiser Park, the neighborhood's largest park, was built in the 1930s atop a former mudflat on Coney Island Creek. Last week, a series of informational plaques designed and created by Charles Denson were installed on the creek side of the park. The Coney Island History Project received a grant from Partnerships for Parks to create a self-guided walking tour brochure and markers for the Coney Island CreekWalk at Kaiser Park. The brochures debuted in April, when Mr. Denson gave a slide-talk about Coney Island Creek's history and future followed by a short walking tour of the creekfront at Kaiser Park. The CreekWalk at Kaiser Park is a starting point for experiencing the creek's ecology and history, including the fishing pier, ship graveyard (including the wreck of the Yellow Submarine), wildlife, sand dunes, and other points of interest. Charles Denson's forthcoming book on Coney Island Creek will cap his 45-year documentation of this fascinating waterway.
