Bloomingdale Playground Schematic Design Meeting

Come check out the Bloomingdale Playground's schematic design developed by the landscape architects after they considered all the input from the community.  This is an opportunity to offer comments as the design is reviewed by Community Board 7.

This presentation is being made at a meeting of the board’s Inclusive Playground Task Force, which has been very involved in this project.

This project is part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Community Parks Initiative. Additional funding has been provided by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, former Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and Council Member Mark Levine. A total of $5.9 million has been allocated to renovate Bloomingdale Playground, including the schoolyard and comfort station. NYC Parks initiated the design process by holding a scope meeting on April 18, 2016, at which local residents shared ideas on how you would like to see your park improved. With this community input, NYC Parks developed a

Concept Plan, which was presented to Community Board 7 for public review on May 23, 2016. NYC Parks has now developed a proposed Schematic Design. Please join us at this meeting to view and comment on this design. Feel free to invite others who may be interested.
