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.
Bloomingdale Playground is part of the Community Parks Initiative (CPI), a citywide program designed to improve historically underfunded parks, is turning around public spaces that have been underserved for too long. The benefits of this vital program are being felt at local parks all over the city.
With the support of CPI, a total of $5.9 million has been allocated to renovate Bloomingdale Playground. We need your input to help decide how it will be used to strengthen this cherished public space.
WHEN: Monday, July 25, 2016 from 6:00 - 7:30PM
WHERE: PS 145/West Prep Academy (150 West 105th Street)
