Nassau County Legislators James Kennedy and Rose Marie Walker recently joined with Farmingdale School District officials, parents, and children for the dedication of the new Woodward Parkway Elementary School playground. Funding for the playground, which totaled $220,000, was obtained by Legislators Walker and Kennedy through the County’s Community Revitalization Program (CRP).“One of the most important investments we can make is in our children,” Legislator Walker said. “Allocating county dollars to provide projects that enhance our schools, parks and open spaces has always been a priority that will pay dividends to residents of all ages. I’m happy I was able to partner with Legislator Kennedy in delivering for our Farmingdale community.”“I am pleased to partner with Legislator Walker to obtain the funding that allowed this project to come to fruition,” Legislator Kennedy said. This playground was nearly two decades old and needed to be upgraded. Now, youngsters throughout the community will enjoy this state-of-the-art facility for years to come.”
