Four Bronx parks rank among worst in the city for second year in a row

A new report finds that conditions at some Bronx parks are getting worse. The Progress Report on Neighborhood Parks, released by New Yorkers for Parks, rates the amount of broken glass, debris, dead animals and general cleanliness of the park. Co-Op City Field, Quarry Ballfields, Tremont Park and University Woods failed the evaluation in 2005 and ranked even lower this year. Citywide, 10 parks failed the evaluation. Officials from the city Department of Parks and Recreation say they plan to invest about $20 million over the next two years to restore those parks.
