This just in! I am so happy to learn of the news, as that play area is really beautiful and completely underutilized.
Good news indeed.

Citizen Help Sought for YMCA Park Clean up and Garden Projects
DEP volunteers launch initiative at YMCA playground that includes creating community and children’s gardens.
Employees from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection office in Kingston have volunteered to clean up the YMCA playground as well as install a community garden and children’s garden at the site, which is behind the YMCA building on Broadway in Midtown. The coordinators are conducting the first cleanup this Saturday, April 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and need community volunteers to help.
The work involves making repairs to the jungle gym as needed, cleaning up trash at Summer and Susan streets, and removing brush, dead limbs and trees as well as removing invasive plants. Additional cleanups are also planned in the coming weeks.
For more information about the clean up as well as to help out with the garden project, contact Ed Blouin at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling him at (845) 616-2677.
