Officials unveil new pavement at Columbus Park

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and members of the Parks Department on Friday unveiled the brand-new pavement at Columbus Park.



The previous pavement was made of blue stone, and it's now been replaced with granite.



The $11 million renovation was funded by Adams and Mayor Bill de Blasio and took a year and a half to complete.



The project was done in phases to minimize the impact on the heavily used area.



The Parks Department says the new material is better suited to withstand heavy pedestrian foot traffic and inclement weather while maintaining the historic integrity of the area.
