A $3.2 million reconstruction of Hart Playground is now underway.
This morning, Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver broke ground on the project, alongside Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and Acting borough President Sharon Lee.
The project was designed with input from the local community.
Improvements include a fully reconstructed playground with painted games and a new concrete spray shower.
The basketball court will be redone, and a new half-court basketball and volleyball/badminton court will be introduced to the site.
There will also be a new entrance on 65th Streets with both stairs and an ADA accessible ramp.
The playground is expected to be open by January 2021.
