Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe joined City Council Member Simcha Felder, Community Board 12 District Manager Wolf Sender, 66th Precinct Inspector Peter DeBlasio, and students from PS 48 and Yeshiva Stolin to cut the ribbon on renovations at Gravesend Park, 18th Avenue and 56th Street, and officially opened the park to the community.
“New York City’s children deserve the best recreation facilities to develop their bodies and minds. Thanks to the generous funding support of Councilman Simcha Felder and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, that is exactly what Gravesend Park now has,” said Benepe.
“Youngsters can delight in the new playground with adventure play equipment, a play mountain, swings and a spray shower. Parkland is at a premium in Borough Park and we are dedicated to restoring our open space facilities throughout the community.”
“This new park is beautiful. Everyone should come out and take advantage of this great renovation,” said Felder.
“Open just in time for the community to take advantage of the nice weather, Gravesend Park will be a magnificent destination for both children and seniors.
