Mayor Eric Adams announced plans to upgrade to a historical Brooklyn park that’s currently undergoing construction.
The Saratoga Park makeover will include swings, a spray shower, a tot play area, ground games, new lighting, and the restoration of the surrounding lawn. 
“New York City’s parks aren’t luxuries, but necessities — playing a critical role building community and nurturing our physical, mental, and emotional health,” said Mayor Adams.
 Saratoga’s upgrade is partly due to Mayor Adam’s recovery plan. 
“Parks can be the great equalizers, which is why every New Yorker, regardless of zip code or color, deserves access to a park. This $417 million investment to revitalize over 100 parks, playgrounds, and greenspaces is a major milestone in our recovery that will pay dividends for generations to come,” said Adams. 
The multi-million-dollar project is funded by the City Council and set for completion by 2023.
