LONG ISLAND CITY — A neighborhood playground that hasn't been renovated for decades is getting a $4.5 million makeover, city officials said Tuesday.
The park — which features play equipment, spray showers, and handball and basketball courts — was last revamped in the mid-1990s, officials said. It's heavily used by students at nearby P.S. 112, I.S. 204 and the Baccalaureate School for Global Education.
City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who helped secure funding for the renovations, said they aim to turn it into a "modern, up-to-date" green space.
The city will hold a community meeting Monday at P.S. 112 to solicit ideas from the public about what changes people want to see in the park.
