Renovated playground opens in Brownsville

The city's Parks Department opened the newly renovated Powell Playground Thursday in Brownsville.



State Assemblyman Erik Dikan and Councilman Rafael Espinal helped raise $2.7 million in funds for the project.



Changes to the playground include four new basketball courts, a handball court and fitness equipment.



In 2013, Houston Playground was also reconstructed as part of the same project. The total cost for both renovated playgrounds is over $5 million.
