Mayor Michael Bloomberg broke ground today on the renovation of Schmul Park, the second project in the development of Freshkills Park in the Travis neighborhood of Staten Island. The $6.5 million project will include a new playground with handball and basketball courts, permeable pavement and a new green comfort station featuring a rain garden. Construction is slated for completion in 2011. “When we finish transforming Freshkills into one of the City’s largest parks, nearly one-third of Staten Island will be public parkland,” Bloomberg said. Bloomberg also broke ground on a new $44 million Sims Municipal Recycling Facility in Sunset Park to serve as a processing site for all of the city’s recyclables. The Brooklyn facility is being constructed by Skanksa USA, as part of the city’s landmark Solid Waste Management Plan, which establishes a system for managing the city’s waste for the next 20 years.
