Jacob Riis Park – Bathhouse
Jacob Riis Park was designed by New York City as a park in 1912. Its famous bathhouse was built by Robert Moses in 1932. Jacob Riis Park became part of the National Park Service when Gateway was established in 1972. The existing bathhouse, entrance pavilion buildings, and surroundings are being imaginatively renovated and will become a beautiful 28 key hotel. The new hotel property will include new bars and restaurants, with a breathtaking view of the ocean and beach. There will also be new concessions to serve the boardwalk and beach goers. A beautiful new pool, landscape, and deck area will be added to East courtyard. The West courtyard will become a new place for live music. Other upgrades include, ADA compliance, enhanced paths to the beach for the public, and relocation of the Lifeguard Station to Bay 9 West.
