A groundbreaking ceremony has been held for the $3 million renovation of Martin Luther King Park, located along Malcolm X Boulevard between West 113th and 114th streets in the southern end of Harlem. The park will get entirely new basketball courts, playgrounds, a water play area, and a turf area. Other upgrades include an outdoor fitness center, as well as new vegetation and a comfort station. Quennell Rothschild & Partners is the landscape architect. The project is part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Community Park Initiative, where a total of 56 existing parks around the city will see renovations.

    It’s a playground, not a park.
    Just another example of DeBlasio’s grandiose and meaningless pronouncements.
