Tree cheers to Councilman David Greenfield (D-Bensonhurst) for officially opening Seth Low playground on Oct. 5. The pol along with New York City Parks Brooklyn Borough Commissioner Martin Maher, and Captain Anthony Longobardi of the 62nd Precinct, students from multiple nearby schools, and community members cut the ribbon on the third major phase of renovations to the site.
Funded with $1.9 million by the Borough President Adams and Councilman Greenfield, this project includes new fields and adult fitness equipment.
The desolate rectangle was transformed from an eyesore into an exPpansive play area complete with a synthetic turf soccer field, and a second, multi-purpose field.
“Seth Low Playground has been transformed from an under--used asphalt area into a beautiful park with amenities for all members of the surrounding community to enjoy,” said Commissioner Maher.
“Seth Low Playground is centrally located near a library, senior centers, and several schools,” Greenfield said, adding: “The reason I’m so committed to this is because everyone deserves a beautiful park for their quality of life, not just children but for everyone who lives in this community.”
