Ocean Breeze Park Track & Field Athletic Complex is slated to open this fall, according to the city Parks Department.

It’s been a long time coming as construction on the $93 million, 135,000-square-foot facility was stunted by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

The complex will feature a running track, which will be able to convert from six to eight lanes and can incline up to 4 1/2 feet, fitness and cardio rooms, along with a covered parking lot for 160 cars, according to the Parks Department.

The project is funded by the city’s PlaNYC initiative.
