This project will reconstruct the playground, basketball court, drainage and water supply systems and surrounding landscape, and construct new adult fitness equipment at Jacob Javits Playground in Fort Tryon Park.

Project Update: The contract completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: issues with a contractor, design error or omission, unexpected field conditions, change in the scope of the project, pending approval and registration of change orders and/or inclement weather.
