Constantinides Allocates $1 Million for Moser Bulova Park Upgrades

New York – City Council Member Costa Constantinides (D-Astoria) allocated almost $1 Million in capital member item funding to Moser Bulova Park in Jackson Heights. The funding was included in the City’s Fiscal Year ‘15 Budget and will be used for upgrades at the park.

“I am proud that we’re able to make the Moser Bulova Park even more of a beautiful green space for our community,” said Constantinides. “The upgrades and beautifications will make Moser Bulova Park more fun for people of all ages to spend the day in and will make our district an enjoyable place for residents as well as visitors. I can’t wait to see residents enjoying picnics on sunny days, people playing sports, children running around and playing with their friends.”

The upgrades include removing the bocce court, upgrading play equipment and installing a new spray shower. Improving the green spaces will also benefit air quality, reduce pollutants, and generally improve the environment.

The budget allocation was met with praise and support from community leaders. President of the North Queens Homeowners Association Donna Raymond said, “I am thrilled that Moser Bulova Park will soon be renovated. I am proud that the planned upgrades will greatly benefit our community and make the neighborhood into a more beautiful place to live. I thank Council Member Constantinides for allocating this funding in the City’s budget.”
