Upcoming: Session on Redesigning JJ Byrne Park

Some possible renovations to JJ Byrne Park in Park Slope, which is the home of a big playground and the Old Stone House among other things, are in the works. The Parks Department and the Old Stone House will be hosting two sessions for group discussions about possible renovations to the Fifth Avenue side of the park. One session is on Friday, January 11 from 7PM-9PM. The other on Saturday, January 12 from 10AM-Noon. Here's an email from Kim Maier, the Old Stone House's Executive Director:

Play space, open space, green space - what do you imagine?!? Join us for break-out group discussions hosted by the Old Stone House and Brooklyn Parks to get your input on potential renovations to the 5th Avenue side of the park between 3rd and 4th streets. On Saturday, January 12 from Noon - 12:30 pm we'll host a special session for kids to get their ideas as well.

Please RSVP by Thursday, January 10 and let us know which session you are planning to attend -- or 718-768-3195. This is a wonderful opportunity for community input...
Friday night or Saturday morning for those who are interested.
