Gowanus Lounge has some additional detail about the renovations planned for the park in the relatively near future. See what they say here.
Even though GL says that the walking tour Gonzalez took with the Parks Commish was this week, according to a letter dated the 20th of August (referenced in the recent playground post), the walkthrough was a few weeks ago. Perhaps she took more than one walk?
Let's hope that the renovations go through as expected and promised, and let's hope that those who care for and use the park will treat it with respect so as to enjoy the renovations for a long time.
