 Ongoing renovations at the two playgrounds in Tremont Park should be wrapped up in time for summer, according to a Parks Department spokesperson who says construction should be finished by the end of the month.

The two play areas along the park's eastern edge, one at Tremont Avenue and Arthur Avenue and another at Arthur Avenue and East 176th Street, have been fenced off since construction began last spring.

The renovation project is costing $4.5 million total and includes the installation of a lawn to replace the deteriorated bocce court and pathways between the two playgrounds. The city is also constructing  new benches, swings, play equipment, water play areas, fencing, and new wheelchair accessible ramps for the existing restrooms.
