New Playground Opens at P.S. 9
PS 9 hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new playground. What was once a bleak asphalt lot with only a basketball court and broken play gym is now a completely refurbished school yard with a number of brightly colored and stimulating play spaces, from tennis courts to climbing structures. The playground was built in conjunction with Out2Play and supported by funding from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, the Department of Education and the Brooklyn Nets Community Alliance.
