P.S. 173 unveiled a new playground at a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 20 at the school, located at 174-10 67th Avenue in Fresh Meadows. During the ceremony, students performed demonstrations of yoga, music and chess.
The new playground, which took approximately 14 months to build, was designed as a “green space,” and it provides sections for both passive and active recreation. There is also a “Wall of Friendship and Respect,” which was designed with student input.
