NYC Parks officials and local politicians cut the ribbon on a revamped Astoria Heights Playground yesterday.
The playground, which is located between 45th Street and 46th Street along 30th Road, had not undergone a major renovation in more than 20 years. The overhaul includes new play equipment for children under 15, an area for tennis and volleyball, and a reconstructed comfort station.
The project cost $7.9 million, according to the Parks Department, and expands the children’s play area, improves the atmosphere of the park and provides areas for passive use.
