Did you know that New York City has more than 1,700 parks, playgrounds, and recreational facilities? Staten Island alone hasover 170 parks with more than 12,300 acres of protected parkland - more than one third of the Island's total land mass! (SILive.com) With so much ground to cover, where does one even start when exploring "The Greenest Borough" in New York?
A good place to start is by visiting NYC Parks & Recreation's Historical Signs Project whose mission is two-fold: teach New Yorkers about the city's rich park history and by doing so, develop communities that seek to nurture these important public spaces. In fact, the park across from Staten Island FunPark was recently rededicated to honor one of Parks' greatest community advocates.
The Christopher J. Igneri Playground offers areas for guests to hang out and play, including handball courts, swings, basketball courts, and a water play area. We at SI FunPark are excited to serve our neighborhood alongside organizations and projects that offer fun activities for families and visitors of all ages.
