City of Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino announced plans to install a new playground at 1031 Garden Ave. His team said, “This project had been promised to the community but was not completed and had been highly anticipated by the neighboring community and residents.”
Restaino noted, “This has been an area of concern for residents for some time. We’re pleased to be able to move this project forward, revitalizing an area that has not been used to its greatest potential, and providing a safe space for children to play in this section of the Niagara Falls community. This was a promise I made to the community and I’m glad to be able to make good on it now.”
In preparation for this, the Department of Public Works has cleared overgrown trees and bushes in the area. As of now, the pavement removal has begun. The city anticipates the park will be up and running with the playground installed before the end of summer.
