Jackson Playground reconstruction begins

IMG_1222The Henry M. Jackson Playground, on the corner of Henry and Jackson Streets across from Fine Fare, has been fenced off and reconstruction has begun on schedule. The $1.7 million facelift as part of the Mayor’s Community Parks Initiative started planning in 2015 with community input, plans were finalized earlier this year, and construction is expected to take 1 year.

Existing facilities — basketball, handball, and seating — will be retained in approximately the same arrangement. Note that the playground easy of this park belongs to NYCHA and is not part of the reconstruction.
