On Tuesday, July 17 Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer joined Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski, Community Board 2, and community members to celebrate the $1.8 million renovation of Big Bush Park in Woodside, next to the Big Six Towers.

“Big Bush Park is a great place in Woodside to sit outside with family and friends, play sports, and get some fresh air,” said NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “I’m thrilled the $1.8 million renovation brings exciting new amenities for the first time in decades. I’m proud of this project that will bring new swings and game tables for kids, drinking fountains for all to stay hydrated, and exercise equipment and smoother running surfaces to stay fit. This park is now something that all of Woodside can be proud of!”
