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.

ParkHoward Von Dohlen Playground

The park will be closed to reconstruct the existing playground to meet modern safety standards, provide for ADA accessibility, and correct existing site drainage problems. This much needed renovation will include new play equipment for young children, new safety surfacing, new play swings and a new spray shower. Additionally, new park benches will be installed and planting areas will be expanded to add raised tree pits and additional greenery to the site. This project will also construct a new comfort station whose design includes a green roof and radiant heat flooring. A new drinking fountain will be installed. Both the comfort station and drinking fountain will be ADA compliant.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2014
