Franklin Square Improvement Project
Thanks to the Friends of Franklin Square who lobbied successfully to install new adult exercise equipment including two-level parallel horizontal bars, parallel bars, horizontal ladder and light fixtures on fence poles to illuminate the western area of the park.
The project received $120,000 Eastern Neighborhood Benefit Funds and a $16,000 General Fund for the exercise equipment costs. Lighting was funded by an add-back allocated from the General Fund, secured by former Supervisor Malia Cohen’s Office at $25,000.

The project received $120,000 Eastern Neighborhood Benefit Funds for the improvement costs which includes a two-level parallel horizontal bar, parallel bars, horizontal ladder.
Because of little illumination along the western area of the park, the community requested several lights along this edge. With $25,000 secured by the Supervisor’s Office, several lamp fixtures will be attached to the athletic field fence poles illuminating the west path and patch of green.
The field was replaced in early 2017 and is now open to the public.
The construction project will be completed in early Winter 2018 Read on...
