The new parking lot near the beach was constructed using Grasspave2 technology, which provides a cool, grass surface for cars and trucks to park on and is part of the New York State Parks Departmentís sustainable design strategy. Grasspave2 was used for itís strength, durability, and ease of maintenance. It protects and enhances the environment by allowing for natural filtration of water into the ground, which is not possible with concrete or asphalt paving. Additionally, it reduces erosion and soil migration, and promotes the conversion of carbon dioxide while reducing the "urban heat island" effect. Grasspave2 is made from 100% recycled plastics.
