Queens Post: Woodside Playground to Undergo $7.1 Million Upgrade
A playground in Woodside is about to get a $7.1 million makeover.
Councilmember Julie Won announced Thursday that Lawrence Virgilio Playground, located between 39th Road and 39th Drive, will be undergoing a revamp that will include upgraded play equipment, sprinklers, security lighting, handball courts and more.
The playground was last upgraded in 2007.
