PlaygroundsAsser Levy Playground

This playground is closed so it can be expanded by creating a new active recreation area on the former Asser Levy Place. This new park space will contain a diverse mix of outdoor recreational opportunities. Neighborhood residents of all ages and abilities will soon be able to play ping pong, badminton, volleyball, chess, soccer, football, t-ball, exercise, jog, practice yoga or enjoy some shaded seating in what previously was an underutilized, two-block-long street. New park features will include an artificial turf field, exercise track, adult fitness equipment, benches, tables, drinking fountains, park lighting and trees. The Asser Levy Recreation Center’s close proximity to the new park space will provide opportunities for outdoor programming, and views of the striking architecture of this landmark building will be enhanced.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
