The Friends of Williamsbridge Oval have been busy rallying to have their new park open in time for the summer season. Their success is proof that our voices can be heard and that our appointed and elected officials do listen when organized constructive criticism is expressed. The following was received by Eileen Markey who has sent multiple e-mails to the BoogieDowner related to the park. Kudos to all the community activists and Bronx Park Commissioner Hector Aponte that worked to make sure the park was open in time for everyone to enjoy the summer season. I look forward to receiving photos taken at the new park.

"A staff member for Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz says Parks says the playground should be open this afternoon or tomorrow morning. This is wonderful. Once it is open let's call Aponte and Conti and thank them."
