Patterson playground in Mott Haven to receive major makeover
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Wednesday for a major Patterson playground reconstruction project.
City park officials say the renovation will make the playground a state-of-the-art facility. The makeover will include basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball fields, swings and a running track. The estimated cost of the project is $800,000 in tax money.
Officials say the endeavor is necessary for the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, including P.S. 18, because the area has few locations for outdoor recreation.The playground renovation is scheduled to be completed by September.
