Ribbon Cutting For Playground In Ridgewood

On December 19th Queens Borough President Melinda Katz joined Council Member Elizabeth Crowley (fourth from l.), Queens Borough Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski (third from l.), Community Board 5 Chair Vincent Arcuri Jr. (third from r.), Community Board 5 District Manager Gary Giordano (r.), 38th Assembly District Democratic Club President Ken Rehberger (l.), Liberty Park Homeowners Association Vice President Kevin Sands (second from r.), PS 68 Principal Anne Marie Scalfaro (second from l.), and students from PS 68 to cut the ribbon on a new playground in Ridgewood’s Evergreen Park. The playground’s innovative design was crafted with significant community input and provides toddlers and younger children with a place to play and use their imagination, surrounded by greenery. A second phase of renovations to Evergreen Park is currently being designed, and will focus on replacing the existing play equipment located west of the comfort station with expanded playground equipment for older kids.  The two phases of renovations will cost a combined total $3.4 million, with funding provide by allocations from Mayor Bill de Blasio, Borough President Katz and Council Member Crowley.
