Put your hands together and raise those shears to cut the ribbon on the first phase of renovations to Dome Playground in Borough Park.
“The redo has doubled the size, giving children ample room to play,” said New York Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver.
Silver, Deputy Borough President Diana Reyna, Councilman Brad Lander (D–Borough Park), and Community Board 12 district manager Barry Spitzer snipped the ribbon and opened the gates to the fantastic play area for the community’s children.
“The new seating area will provide community members with a gathering space,” added Silver, who thanked the councilman and the borough president’s office for lending their support and partnership.
The makeover’s second phase, including handball and basketball courts, will begin this year.
Dome Playground is named in honor of community activists Charles (1904–1984) and Jessie Dome (1904–1987), both of whom were long-time residents of Borough Park.
