Community continues struggle to make park in Riverdale safe for kids

? Concerned residents from Riverdale continue to work to get Seton Park safe for children competing in sports as the Little League and soccer seasons begin. Parents, coaches, and other community members have been fighting the city to level the playing fields, remove rocks, and reseed the grounds. Community members are delighted by the financial aid promised by city council members. City Council Speaker Gifford Miller has secured $200,000 for needed improvements in the park and City Councilman G. Oliver Koppell promises an additional $200,000 by summer. In the past, the community members have raised $500,00 from private donations. The city parks department rejected the offer stating the city does not accept these kinds of offers. The Little League season begins the first week in April.
