Matthew P. Sapolin Playground, formerly Playground Seventy, was renamed in 2012 to honor the former Commissioner of the New York City Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities, who passed away from complications due to cancer in 2011. Befitting its namesake, Sapolin Playground is a playground for children of all abilities. It features a children's garden with accessible bridges running across it, musical instruments built into the play space, and basketball courts with adjustable basketball backstops that can be lowered for athletes in wheelchairs. The comfort station and picnic tables also allow disabled access.
