Playground improvements planned for NYC children

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has earmarked $111 million to help expand and improve playgrounds at 290 schools most in need of open space. It is part of the $1.2 billion PlaNYC, a project that aims to create playgrounds or parks within a 10-minute walk of all residents by 2010. The mayor’s allocation will help the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation add new tracks, fields, asphalt, turf, play equipment, landscaping and fencing, as well as make facilities accessible year-round and throughout the day.
