City Budget Invests in Prospect Park
July 13, 2016
For the millions of Brooklyn residents who consider Prospect Park their backyard, exciting changes are on the horizon. The Prospect Park Alliance is delighted that, thanks to the support of Brooklyn’s elected officials, the recently approved city budget includes significant capital investments in the Park.
This funding comes after the recent announcement that Prospect Park was awarded funding through NYC Parks’ Parks Without Borders initiative, which will improve and open new entrances to the Park along Flatbush Avenue. Prospect Park Alliance staff will begin to design and plan this wide variety of projects in 2016, and will be busier than ever improving many areas of the Park over the coming years.
“We are fortunate to have such wonderful support from our local elected officials,” said Alliance President Sue Donghue, “and we are thrilled that these funds will be used to make Prospect Park even greater.”
The Alliance’s work to keep the Park green and beautiful continues, even while these restoration projects are underway. This critical work would not be possible without the support of our members, donors and volunteers. To join us in our mission to sustain Prospect Park, learn more about ways to get involved.
