Renovate and upgrade Bruckner Playground

This petition had 134 supporters

Bruckner Playground, is located in the Throgs Neck section of the Bronx, behind M.S.101. Most of the time, the school closes off their end of the playground, not giving kids access to their play area and jungle gym, leaving kids with only 1 small, and not the most safe jungle gym, espeacilly for kids under 3. While there is a ton of space not being used, there is no swing set, sprinkler, or anything for the kids to do or play on. The only jungle gym, is very old and in depleting condition. Babies, have nothing to do when they come to the park with older siblings, since there are no swings, or anything suitable for them to play on. (ages 0-2) . While the park does have plenty of other amenities for the older teenagers, such as a basketball court, skate park, etc, they leave the actual children with little to nothing to do. Residents have reached out to local elected officials, and the parks department , with no luck, and have been shot down and told there isn't enough money, or enough of a need to improve or upgrade the park. This is literally the ONLY park for miles, the only park in our neighborhood. And we don't even have a swing set..

Please stand with us, and call on our elected officials, the mayor, parks department, and any other necessary organizations to renovate this park, and add a swing set for our kids and more accommodations for our children of all ages, including the younger ones.
