NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Despite the trains running overhead, Elton Playground is a quiet neighborhood park with simple but well-laid-out recreational facilities for a variety of tastes. Located on Elton Street between New Lots and Hegeman Avenues, the playground shares the property, which actually belongs to the Metropolitan Transit Authority, with Linwood Playground, on the other side of the tracks. Tall sycamores (Platanus occidentalis) line the boundary between the parks, and London planetrees (Platanus x acerifolia), planted in 1986, will grow to meet them in the years to come, shading the sidewalk benches.
