QNS: Murray Playground in Long Island City to undergo $5.3 million makeover

Gantry Plaza State Park and Hunters Point South Park get the most attention along the Long Island City waterfront, but there are other public spaces in one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in the country that need to keep pace with the explosive growth of the community. Murray Playground on 45th Road will have new improvements on the western side of the park after Councilwoman Julie Won secured $5.3 million in capital funding to reconstruct the park’s synthetic turf athletic field and renovate the dog run.

Renovations will also include increased security lighting throughout the park, the repair of broken tiles for the children’s sprinkler and upkeep like daily cleaning of excess sand on the playground from the sandbox, regular gardening and a cleaning schedule throughout the entire park.
