NYC Parks will join community members virtually to participate in visioning and planning meetings to discuss four reconstruction projects in the borough: Linden Park Multi-purpose Play Area and Linden Park Playground in Brownsville and John J. Carty Park, Vinland Playground, and Owl’s Head Park Playground in Bay Ridge. These projects represent a more than $20 million investment in Brooklyn parks.

By launching virtual community input meetings, NYC Parks is re-imagining community outreach in response to the need for social distancing during the current COVID-19 pandemic. These meetings are open to the public and will provide an opportunity for New Yorkers to voice their ideas on design enhancements in their neighborhoods.
