Sunners Playground – Brooklyn NY

Description

William Sunners Playground, located in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn, was constructed using WPA materials and labor.

New York City’s Parks Department writes:
“This playground was acquired by the City in 1940 and first opened to the public on April 12, 1941. It was one of four separate parcels in the area that were obtained by the City for park purpose, in response to a local need for more parkland. At the time, this triangular parcel was valued at approximately $8,000. Each of the four park parcels were laid out as playgrounds by Parks designers and developed with materials and labor provided by the federally-funded Works Progress Administration (WPA).”
