Restroom Construction Begins Now

Today’s the day! Parks Department workers are setting up the fencing to cordon off the construction site for Gulick’s future¬†comfort station.

The north side of the playground and the basketball courts will be closed down until construction finishes.

In the meantime, we hope that the other, larger play structure will remain open for use. PS 134 and three or four preschools all use Gulick now for recess because of the other local park closures.

NYC Parks and Friends of Gulick Park are still waiting for NYC DOT to approve the construction documents pertaining to the rest of the renovation. We still hope that this will commence in the late fall of this year, 2017.
