Juggling in the Park


Will Shaw, a juggler whose eccentric act involves boomerangs, cowboy ropes, and fire, performed in Mount Hope Playground this morning, in front of a rapt audience of local kids.

The playground, on Walton Avenue at 177th Street, finally reopened earlier this month following a 2-year renovation project. Originally, construction was supposed to wrap up in the spring of 2007, but the Parks Department was forced to switch contractors midway through causing delays. (On a side note, can anyone think of a park or playground in the Bronx whose renovation has been completed on time? Perhaps, to avoid disappointment, Parks should add a year to all their construction estimates. Just a thought.)

Anyway, Mount Hope Playground, now open, looks fantastic. And judging by this morning’s turnout it’s going to be put to good use.
