Council Member Joseph C. Borelli (R-South Shore) raised the issue with Mayor Bill de Blasio after hearing complaints from hundreds of parents regarding the lack of restroom facilities at Seaside Wildlife Nature Park, also known as Pirate Park, in Great Kills, and was successful in securing a commitment of $6 million to fund the construction of one. The announcement was made at the Mayoral Town Hall which was held in Borelli’s district this week.

“My office has fielded many complaints from parents who take their children to Seaside Wildlife Nature Park, and have been frustrated by the lack of restrooms. I appreciate the Mayor taking our concerns seriously, realizing how important this park is to the community, and providing funding from his budget to bring a restroom to Seaside,” said Borelli.
