Funding for Javits Playground Celebrated at Toast to Fort Tryon Park Event
The Fort Tryon Park Trust is proud to announce that it gifted $350,000 to NYC Parks at A Toast to Fort Tryon Park to help close the funding gap for the reconstruction of Javits Playground. This funding gift along with that of $600,000 from Borough President Brewer and $1,500,000 from Councilmember Rodriguez provide the total projected capital costs of $2.45 million for a Phase I project at Javits. NYC Parks has committed to restoring the natural areas of the playground with in-house resources, so the full area west of Fort Washington Avenue can be revitalized.
