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.
