    Regional Park Systems Can Mitigate Rising Currents

    Ocean Beach, Staten Island - A coastal recreation area serving just under 500K residents of Staten Island, Ocean Beach is threatened by a situational confluence: the ebb and flow between conflicting forces of water and places of risk.

    These coastal recreation areas are natural catch basins for water runoff. They help to protect both the urban landscape and the situational context of coastal areas. These regional recreation areas are essential th the sustainability of the Ocean Beach community, and serve to demonstrate the practical application of recreation sytems to balance rising water levels and population occupation of urban landscapes.
