Rochdale Village will receive a new playground and a facelift as part of a $9 million city aid package announced by Councilwoman Adrienne Adams (D-Jamaica) on Tuesday.

John F. Kennedy was president of the United States when the co-op took in its first residents on the site of the old Jamaica Race Course in 1963. The funding announced by Adams includes $6 million for a new South Rochdale Village Playground, $2.8 million for facade repairs, $75,000 for senior programming and $45,000 for youth programs.
