New Playground Planned for Greenacres

GAOpen3After years of negotiations, Scarsdale Village has announced plans to install a new playground on the Village-owned portion of Greenacres field, across from the school.

The existing playground has dated and broken equipment and the baby swings have been missing for five years. A sorry sandbox and worn benches are long overdue for replacement. Funds that were earmarked for the park in previous years were inadequate and were spent on other projects.

Advocating on behalf of the Greenacres Neighborhood Association, President Kirsten Zakierski was successful in her campaign to get Village Trustees to allocate $200,000 in the proposed Village budget for 2024-25 to build the park.

Three proposed designs have been received by the Recreation Department and the neighborhood association sent out an email asking for residents to vote for their favored options. Take a look at them here.

All include two new baby swings!

Here are the three options. What do you think? Submit your feedback below.
