2 East New York parks close for upgrades

Posted: Updated:
EAST NEW YORK -

Two parks in East New York are under construction as they receive much-needed makeovers.

Linden Park and Cypress Hills Playground are receiving upgrades that include misting stations, drinking fountains, tracks and fields.

Linden Park is also getting new lights and a pull-up bar, while Cypress Hills will get a perimeter recreation path, reconstructed dugouts and bleachers.

The changes are backed by about $9 million in funding from the city.

Construction at both parks is expected to be completed by next fall.
