Gerritsen Beach residents gathered last night to hear the city’s plans for the expanded Seba Avenue Park: two new playgrounds and spray shower areas, which will cost roughly $1.3 million. Construction on a $1 million comfort station there is also slated to begin in the spring and take between nine months and one year to complete. Much to the south Brooklyn community’s dismay, the swings they’d been angling to get installed at Seba Avenue for the neighborhood’s older children weren’t in the design plans. City Council member Lew Fidler told The Real Deal that after hearing the reaction from meeting attendees, the city is now looking to add more swings, which could increase the new playground’s cost. See the video above to view a presentation on the park expansion by City Council member Lew Fidler, Marin Maher, the Brooklyn Parks chief of staff, and the Seba Avenue Park design team.
