Dome Playground--on Dahill Road at 38th Street, near Cortelyou Road--is getting an extreme makeover. The plans originated in the Parks Department and were modified based on residents' feedback. The modified plans were be unveiled at a public meeting with the Parks Department.
A brand new Dome Playground is coming. The park, which sits on the border of Kensington and Borough Park at 38th Street and Dahill Road, is getting a facelift thanks to an investment of public funds and input from your neighbors.

I am happy to report that the NYC Parks Department will present a detailed plan for upcoming improvements to Dome Playground next Thursday, October 3rd at 6:30 pm at PS 179 (202 Avenue C between East 2nd and East 3rd Streets) in the auditorium.

The first phase of renovations to Dome Playground will double the size of the playground and provide great new play equipment for toddlers through 12 year-olds. It will also include improvements to the lawn, removal of those giant rocks, addition of new trees and plants, and the creation of a multi-use area for community gatherings.

When I first came into office, I worked (along with Borough President Marty Markowitz) to allocate funding for renovations. My office organized a meeting to hear your ideas about what should be done. Based on your ideas, the Parks Department developed a conceptual plan, which they presented to the community at PS 230 in April.

The Parks Department has incorporated the community feedback they received in April and is now ready to present their detailed plans. Please join me and the Brooklyn Community Board 12 Parks Committee for a presentation from the NYC Parks Department next Thursday, October 3rd at 6:30 at PS 179 (202 Avenue C between East 2nd and East 3rd Streets) in the auditorium.

For questions, please contact Catherine Zinnel in my District Office at 718-499-1090 or czinnel [at] council [dot]

I hope to see you there,
