Skate park for Woodhaven
From DNA Info:
The Parks Department has put out a request for bids to build a massive new skate park in Woodhaven.
The 10,350 square-foot skate park — the sixth city-run facility in Queens — will part of a larger renovation at London Planetree Park, on Atlantic Avenue between 88th and 89th streets.
The skate park, located in what is now a basketball and baseball playground, will feature two stair sections, grind rails, a brick quarter pipe and a series of banks and slopes.
The renovations for Planetree, which will cost $1.72 million, will also include two new basketball courts to the south of the skate park, along with adult fitness equipment, a walking path, shrubs and a sitting area.
The project is expected to be completed in fall 2013.
