Community leaders celebrated in Bushwick as the New York City Parks Department opened a new green space.

The new Beaver Noll Park opened Friday after renovations.

The renovations for the space, in addition to another location, totaled $6.5 million.

The Parks Department renovated the comfort station, redoing the building with the bathrooms and storage for parks staff to work from.

Beaver Noll Park also has new play equipment, which is handicap-accessible and a new seating area.
