Lincoln Park Playground

This petition had 89 supporters

The condition of the playground located in Lincoln Park (District 3), is completely unsafe for children to be playing in. Lincoln Park is located in a minority neighborhood, primarily Blacks & Latino's... The "Pour-in-Place rubber" is completely torn up, with the ground underneath exposed for children to land into at the bottom of every slide and all throughout the playground. Being that the pour-in-place is torn & left exposed in an abundance, it is not leveled and kids are constantly tripping and falling in the playground (someone is going to get seriously injured). The City of New Rochelle has been neglected this ongoing problem for a number of years now. After emailing William Zimmerman about this issue his response was; "although it's 16 years old, it's safe just unattractive." "Pour-in-Place rubber" only lasts 7 years!. William Zimmerman also stated that something is supposed to get started on the playground in the fall of 2017. After posting a video of its horrific conditions, another New Rochelle resident said that after contacting Wiliam Zimmerman about it as well, he told her they we going to start something in the fall of 2016. This is a complete run around while other parks in different districts are attended to on a daily bases. The playground equipment is old & outdated, the playground floor is completely torn up & unsafe, and it's filled with garbage. The playground floor "pour in place rubber" needs to get replaced immediately! It wasn't done in 2015, not in the fall of 2016, certainly won't be done in the fall of 2017, 18... NOW!!!
