Brooklyn children can now enjoy the newly-improved Vanderbilt Street Playground in Prospect Park.
Along with traditional swings, slides and monkey bars, the park also features more creative playground equipment.
The brainchild of the Prospect Park Alliance, the project was able to secure $1.8 million in city funding.
"When you add P.S. 154, which has become one of the finest public schools in this city, no question about it, and the excitement of all the young families that have chosen to live here in Windsor Terrace, this park comes at the absolutely perfect time," said Borough President Marty Markowitz.
The new playground also features new drinking fountains, new seating and more lighting designed to make the park more secure.
First opened in 1929, the park just underwent its first renovation in a decade.
