Come plant your idea in the heads of the Shore Road Park designers.

The city will host a meeting tonight for locals to weigh in on the redesign of a dilapidated stretch of Shore Road Park. Volunteer group the Shore Road Parks Conservancy aims to give the green space a multi-million-dollar makeover with the city’s blessing. The session will give parkgoers a voice in the redesign, said a rep for the Parks Department.

“Parks wants to hear from local residents and frequent patrons of the park to help inform our future planning,” said Martin Maher, the department’s borough commissioner.

The Conservancy has dubbed the project the Shore Line and hired environmental planners Nelson, Pope, and Voorhies to rethink the parkland from 80th to 88th streets, but eventually hopes to renovate up to 97th Street.

The bulk of the project is uprooting forested areas overwhelmed with invasive species and planting native greenery. But landscape ecologists have envisioned three nifty concepts — that can be mixed and matched — to bring the park into the 21st century.

Officials will present the designs, and listen to locals’ feedback and wishlist for the reboot.

Shore Road Parks Community Session at Fort Hamilton High School (8301 between 83rd Street and Shore Road Lane) on April 27. 7 pm.
