SUNSET PARK UPDATE JANUARY

Courtesy of Croton United's FB page - SUNSET PARK UPDATE:

We heard that the new Sunset Park playground is nearly complete so we went by to take a look. Anyone who has fond memories of watching their kids enjoying the old playground (kids who have recently started college!) can immediately see that a great deal of thought and planning went into retaining the charm of the old Sunset Park while making it bigger and better. Many thanks to the dedicated community volunteers who worked with the Recreation and Parks Department and the village staff to design this gem of a playground.
