A renovation project is underway at Hoyt Playground that will revamp exercise equipment and spray showers, among others.
Hoyt Playground is located on Hoyt Avenue North between 29th and 31st Streets. The $825,000 revamp was funded by the City Council and is expected to be complete in the fall, Parks Department spokesperson Meghan Lalor said.
The project involves reconstructing the adult fitness equipment, basketball courts and spray showers, according to Lalor.
Pavement and fencing will also be upgraded.
Access to the park will be restricted as construction moves forward.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and look forward to reopening in the fall,” Lalor said.
