Marina at Great Kills Park: FAQs
What is the future of the Great Kills Marina?
Gateway will use Department of Transportation funding to repair the storm damaged bulkhead and remove underwater debris. We expect work to commence in late summer/early fall.
When will I be able to put my boat back in the water?
Once the bulkhead repair and debris removal are completed, construction of a temporary floating dock facility can occur. The target date for boat owners to put their boats back in the water is summer of 2014.
Will the number of docks/slips be the same?
The temporary marina facility will be sustainable and has been designed to accommodate up to 250 slips.
Will the rates stay the same?
The rates for docks will be competitive with the local market.
