• Creston Avenue Playground

    In 2001, NYRP joined with local community members to transform a neglected lot into a compact park, featuring a colorful playscape from KaBOOM!, a national non-profit organization whose mission is to create play spaces within walking distance of every child in America.

    Beautiful ornamental plantings decorate the front and sides of the garden, tables are used for community picnics, and benches throughout provide restful seating for parents and elderly neighbors. In 2020, the NYRP Operations staff added raised bed space for growing produce.
