Sometime between the evening of Tuesday, September 27 and the morning of Wednesday, September 28, an individual or group apparently set fire to a playground, located in Alley Pond Park, at the intersection of Springfield Boulevard and 76th Avenue in Oakland Gardens.

According to officials, the fire damaged both the ground surface and several pieces of playground equipment.
The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation has initiated an investigation.
“Anyone who witnessed the action or has relevant information should come forward,” said Councilmember Mark Weprin. “The children of our community have lost access to a beautiful and safe place to play.”
