The artificial turf at the Parade Grounds is in very poor shape. There are black pellets everywhere. How safe is this environment for children? The NYC parks website describes the turf as state-of-the-art: https://www.nycgovparks.org/parks/parade-ground/history. While that may have been the case in 2003, it is certainly not the case now. So many children use the Parade Grounds, it seems a worthwhile project for the district. I realize it is very expensive, but maybe it could be done in phases.
