The Swede Hollow Park Master Plan was approved in September 2019. As funding opportunities become available through grant options and partnerships, the Department of Parks and Recreation will implement projects as identified in the master plan. (See Swede Hollow Master Plan) The Swede Hollow Park Signage project will include developing and installing interpretive signs, park maps, and neighborhood park signs.

Funding has been secured through the Parks Conservancy Hardenbergh Grant and PED Commercial Vitality Zone.
