Prospect Park Alliance--the non-profit organization that sustains the Park--reports that through the support of New York City Councilmember Mathieu Eugene, it is undertaking a $750,000 renovation of the Prospect Park Parade Ground to
  • construct an adult fitness area,
  • add a cooling misting line along the heavily-used soccer fields,
  • fix drainage problems at Field 7,
  • reconstruct the volleyball court, and
  • add shade trees and new seating.

The adult fitness area will contain twelve types of fitness equipment, including accessible equipment, an open area for group classes, and custom concrete "step-up" blocks.

The misting line will be installed along Fields 10 and 11. Set on timers, it will provide a cooling screen of mist when the artificial turf fields are at their busiest and hottest. No water will collect on the ground--the mist will evaporate to cool the air.

The projected completion date is March 2019.

On Friday, April 13th, at 10:30 a.m., join the celebration of the start of construction as ground is broken at Prospect Park Parade Ground. Enter at Parade Place.
