East Brooklyn Congregation winning battle for Bushwick playground improvements

Residents have spent two years lobbying for better park conditions for kids. (7/7/14)

BROOKLYN - A two-year battle for improved parks in Bushwick is finally starting to pay off. 

Several improvement projects are on the way thanks to residents from the East Brooklyn Congregation, a group of churches and nonprofit organizations, who have been rallying local leaders for better playgrounds. 
 
Neighbors say that City Council approved a bathroom at Green Central Knoll Park just last week, and a turf field will be installed at Heckscher Playground for kids to play on. 

There's no word yet on when construction will get underway. People in the neighborhood promise that once conditions are acceptable for their children, they'll do everything they can to make sure it's maintained.
