Since May, residents told News 12 the basketball court constantly floods with water.
A resident was told by a Parks Department staff member that the issue stems from a clay pipe that was installed in the 1950s and was never replaced.
The Parks Department says it plans on sending a team to inspect on Saturday. A spokesperson saying," Ensuring our park-goers can use our amenities safely is a priority for us. Due to heavy rains lately, we are processing multiple plumbing requests, but we are aware of this issue."
