A New Park for Far Rock


What better way to celebrate the start of spring than by opening a new park—or five of them! On Tuesday, March 18, the Parks Department celebrated the opening of five new parks and playgrounds, one in each borough, and one in Far Rockaway was among them.

The new Grassmere Playground, located at Grassmere Terr., Briar Pl. between Hanson Ct. and Brookhaven Ave, opened with a ribbon cutting on Tuesday. The park, which was made possible with $3.3 million in mayoral funding, includes new playground areas, a 100-meter track and junior soccer fields, an educational wooded trail, an outdoor classroom, a junior basketball court, adult fitness equipment, a children’s water play area, and improved planting, seating and lighting.
