We have this news from the Brooklyn Heights Association:
At the request of the BHA, the NYC Parks Department has begun a week-long repair of Pierrepont Playground beginnng today to make it a safer and more resilient recreational space.
The repairs include creating a more level rubberized surface where tree roots have pushed up, improving drainage, and strengthening the gate. Barring unforseen problems, the project is expected to be completed on Friday, October 7th. In the interim, Harry Chapin Playground at Middagh & Columbia Heights and the Adam Yauch Park at State & Columbia Place remain open for restless kids to use.
The BHA took action to have the playground repaired after local residents complained of noise and possible unsafe conditions from deteriorated equipment.
