Breaking Ground at Dome Playground

Breaking Ground at Dome Playground

The kids of Borough Park and Kensington need more room to play – so I’m very pleased that our renovation of Dome Playground (at Dahill Road and 38th Street) will double the size of the children’s play area, and make the whole park better for families. Today the City broke ground on this exciting renovation that will include a new spray shower area, a seating plaza, an open lawn, and planting beds. The renovation is expected to be finished in about a year. Check out the rendering to see the changes that are in the works.

The idea for this renovation came from community members who love the park, so we worked hard to make the planning process inclusive of the diverse voices of these great neighborhoods. They made this a great plan. Thanks to Borough President Adams for his support; to Commissioner Mitch Silver, Borough Commissioner Kevin Jeffrey, and Borough Chief-of-Staff Marty Maher for working with us to listen to community voices and for their dedicated work to speed up the park renovation process; to Community Board 12 Chair Yidel Perlstein and District Manager Barry Spitzer for their partnership; and to community leaders like Jole Carliner, Annie Ferdous, and Mamnunul Huq for helping to organize community members to take part in the planning process.

I can’t wait for the new Dome Playground next year, which will become a much-loved treasure for the young-at-heart of all ages.
