RED HOOK - A Red Hook park severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy is finally getting a long-overdue facelift.

New York's Parks Department says $2.6 million will go toward renovations at Coffey Park, such as new seating and the creation of picnic areas with barbecues. The central plaza area is also being reconfigured with decorative paving.

Fresh sod and new landscaping dotted with more trees and plants will be installed. The department is putting in new ground hydrants for seasonal watering of the planting beds to make sure the plantings stay green.

The renovations are scheduled to be completed by next spring.
