What's Your Opinion

Compiled by

Question: Are you happy with the improvements made to Canarsie Park - and will you be taking advantage of the park this summer? What additions would you like to see there?

“Yes, I'm happy with the improvements. There is skateboarding in the back - and a new playground. I would like to see more sprinklers for the kids - and more grills.”

–Jeannie Montez,

“It’s really nice. They made a lot of improvements - more fields, more accessible for the community. Maybe, they could improve the field house - more supplies for activities, a better rest room, make them larger.”

–Jeannette Mendoza,

“I think the park is beautiful. I would say we have to thank Councilman Fidler for that – for being attentive to the needs that are paramount to the welfare of the community. In the future, they need to maintain upkeep of the park and the ballfields.”

Albert Payne,

“I’m extremely happy with improvements. It’s a lot better. They added a physical fitness area which is not part of the playground - so you don’t have to bother the kids with pull ups, etc. I would love to see a dog run in the park. There are a lot of dogs in the park - and they are unleashed. It would be safer and cleaner if there was a dog run.”

–Earl Blake,
