Innovative playground plans are blooming like spring flowers in Memorial Park. Members of two initiatives, one to renovate the children’s playground and one to build a skate park, were well represented at the last two Village Board meetings. Both groups seek maximum public participation as they begin to raise funds for the design and building phases of their projects. These efforts are now merging under the umbrella of the Nyack Park Conservancy creating an open space planning-palooza on our underutilized waterfront.
