Some good news for those clamoring for improvements to the hockey rink at Mafera Park.
Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley announced that the site has been included in a multi-site contract to improve hockey rinks throughout the borough.
Construction is expected to start this spring, according to the Park Department.
Crowley funded $500,000 for the renovations, and the de Blasio administration put in another $500,000.
“Kids, parents, players and more have expressed a great need for these rinks to be fixed up. They are used everyday, throughout every season,” she said. “Securing this renovation means that countless people can continue to safely enjoy this space year-round.”
