Greenpoint park to undergo several renovations

Posted: Updated:
GREENPOINT -

McGlorick Park is expected to be getting some major upgrades in the next year.

Park officials just finished repairing a dog park over the last few weeks. The park now has new fencing, wood chips and gravel.

Plans for the park now include more tables and a new play area for kids that will include swingsets. New fencing, pavements and sprinklers for children are also slated to be added.

Officials say they also plan on cleaning up piles of branches. They are warning residents that construction is likely to cause some sections of the park to be closed.

Parkgoers like Melanie Hernandez say they are willing to wait.

"If it needs to be done, then it's part of what comes with improvement," Hernandez said. "You need to close it for a little bit and that's not so good and then something better will come."

The Parks Department told News 12 that construction will start in September and end about a year later. The estimated cost for all the renovation is $5 million.
