Students design their playground, watch it be built
WILLIAMSBURG – Brooklyn kids got a chance to build the playground of their dreams yesterday on what Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz declared “Let’s Play Day.”
Markowitz joined children from Nuestros Niños Child Development School, a program under the Administration for Children’s Services, where children did not previously have a playground within walking distance. The kids had a chance to design plans and draw the playground they wanted, then watched volunteers install a triple racer slide and rock-climbing walls.
