The City of Yonkers has broken ground on the first of three phases of renovations planned for Trevor Park on Ravine Avenue.
Work at the 25-acre park will include installation of new basketball courts, tennis courts, benches and walkways and replacement of the playground surfacing. The first phase, estimated at $1.1 million, is scheduled to be complete in early summer.
“Trevor Park is a staple of this neighborhood and our waterfront,” said Mayor Mike Spano. “When we invest in local parks like Trevor, we are investing in the quality of life of our residents. Thank you to our City Council, especially Councilmember Shanae Williams and our Parks Department for prioritizing these improvements for the betterment of our city.”
Trevor Park will undergo additional improvements in the next three years that will include the rehabilitation of the restrooms and the ballfields, the dog area and the installation of fitness equipment and new bleachers.
“Trevor Park is a significant community space here in west Yonkers, yet for years it has been overlooked and in dire need of an upgrade,” said Steve Sansone, commissioner, Yonkers department of parks, recreation & conservation. “This is a first in a series of exciting parks renovations to be done this year. We are excited to reimagine and reinvent Trevor Park while respecting its history and unique splendor and views.”
