Three Brooklyn parks rank among worst in the city for second year in a row

BROOKLYN - A new report finds that conditions at some Brooklyn parks are getting worse. The Progress Report on Neighborhood Parks, released by New Yorkers for Parks, rates the amount of broken glass, debris, dead animals and general cleanliness of a park. Coney Island Creek Park, Irving Square Park and Martinez Playground failed the evaluation in 2005 and ranked even lower this year. Citywide, 10 parks failed the evaluation. Officials from the city Department of Parks and Recreation say they plan to invest about $20 million over the next two years to restore those parks.
