City officials and park advocates came together to welcome Starlight Park to the Bronx River Greenway in an official ribbon cutting ceremony on May 10.
The event celebrated the construction of Phase 1 of Starlight Park and officially opened its ground for public use, although many community residents have been spotted enjoying what this new park has to offer.
New York City Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Veronica White opened the ceremony. In attendance was Congressman Jose Serrano, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Assembly Member Marcos Crespo, Bronx Borough Commissioner Hector Aponte and Executive Director of Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice, David Shuffler all of whom addressed the crowd.
We are thrilled to see this park come to life and to want to thank all those who helped to facilitate this project.
