Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

This text is part of Parks’ Historical Signs Project and can be found posted within the park.

This park located in Ozone Park is named for Vito Locascio (1935-2006), a Parks worker who played an active role in the life of Parks and who died from cancer at the age of 70 on May 4, 2006.

Vito Locascio first came to work for Parks at the greenhouse in Forest Park in the early 1950’s. He was drafted soon after, and served in the Korean War where he was wounded in battle and received an honorable discharge. Locascio returned to Parks where he rose through the ranks. For 12 years he worked as a park supervisor in Coney Island, and finished his career in downtown Brooklyn. At Parks, Locascio also played an active role at Parks’ training academy and as president of the Parks’ Columbian Association for 32 years. In 2008, Community Board #10 and Council Member Joseph Addabbo supported a proposal to rename the park Locascio Field, which was previously called Loring Field since 1987.
