Ennis Playground – What’s your vision?

Ennis Playground – What’s your vision?

You might have seen that that last year, my office—together with Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams—allocated $1.85 million in public funding to renovate Ennis Playground -- located between 11th & 12th Streets and 2nd & 3rd Avenues in Gowanus. We’re working together with the NYC Parks Department to upgrade the entire park over the next few years, including the children’s play area, basketball courts, and seating area.

Last January we organized a “listening session” with the NYC Parks Department to hear your initial ideas for improvements to the space. Now we’re ready to move forward with the next step in the renovation process:  please join us and your neighbors to talk about how the funding will be spent.  Should the different park elements remain where they are today? What kinds of play equipment should there be? Are there new features we’d like to incorporate? Working with the Parks Department, we'll discuss what Ennis Playground will look like for the next decade.

Join us Tuesday evening to share your ideas:
