Cadman Park Oval Re-opened

As reported by Mary Frost in the Eagle, the shaded oval area at the north end of Cadman Park has been re-opened “after a year-long, $64 million upgrade that includes a new lawn and plantings, new paths, replaced plumbing for drinking fountains, and new lighting.” The Eagle story quotes Cadman Park Conservancy president Doreen Gallo thanking former City Council Member Steve Levin and Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Marty Maher for their roles in “prioritizing and securing this project” and giving current City Council Member Lincoln Restler “a very special thank you … for seeing this project from beginning to completion, in addition to funding the athletic field on the south end of the park.”

Although Gallo says “the Conservancy is absolutely thrilled” by the restoration of the oval, she also expresses concern that the city’s budget for parks may not provide adequate funds for needed upkeep.
