State Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas (D-Astoria), state Sen. Mike Gianaris (D-Astoria) and the Friends of Astoria Heights Playground recently led a volunteer effort to clean up Astoria Heights Park.

The event was part of “It’s My Park Day,” a citywide initiative, presented by Partnerships for Parks, which works with hundreds of community parks groups to lead clean-up events in neighborhood parks across the city.

More than 75 volunteers, including City Council candidate Costa Constantinides joined the elected officials to improve the park.

“The improvements we accomplished today by working together with parents, children and volunteers of all ages prove how a united community can preserve and protect our public space,” Simotas said.

Welcome to the discussion.
