The NYC Parks Department has finished phase 1 of the renovation of Bennett Park at Fort Washington Avenue and 183rd Street. The interior of the park looks great. There are new benches and tables. The perimeter of historic Fort Washington is better marked by cobblestone and a re-creation of a Revolutionary War cannon stands on the "parapet." There are new trees, evergreen plantings and light fixtures. And the materials feel solid and durable (except the lawn, which will never survive).
Phase 2 will tackle the perimeter of the park once the Parks Department secures funding. And the park will no doubt suffer with cuts to the Parks Department's maintenance budget, which is down 20% from 2008 to 2012 (source, www.ny4p.com). But for now, congratulations on a job well done.
