Sunnyside Gardens Park Gets Funds From Con Ed

Aug. 26, 2010 Staff Report

Con Edison of New York presented members of Sunnyside Gardens Park with a check last week to help cover the costs of the park’s overhaul. The amount of the donation has yet to be confirmed.

The park is in the midst of a two year redevelopment plan, which includes replacing the basketball courts, putting down new grass, to fixing the expensive drainage system– which has not been replaced in its history.

Congressman Joseph Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx) joined community members and leaders at a presentation of funds. Crowley, a long-time supporter of Sunnyside Gardens Park, was invited as a guest of the Friends of Sunnyside Garden Park, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for the Park.

Sunnyside Gardens Park is one of two membership parks in New York City.
