Local officials and community members — both two- and four-legged — gathered on Saturday, June 22 to reopen the newly renovated Lou Lodati Park at the corner of Skillman Avenue and 43rd Street in Sunnyside.
The $1.4 million renovations provide the community with an official dog run, improved asphalt sports courts and new trees and other plants throughout the park. Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer and Borough President Helen Marshall provided $700,000 for the project.
