Isadore Goldberg Park is located between the rental buildings on Sir Walter Scott Avenue and Kildare Road in District 2. It is named after former District 1 City Councillor Isadore Goldberg.
The decision to place the park in this odd spot was made years ago, long before there was development along Marc Chagall Avenue. Mayor Anthony Housefather has supported my desire to relocate the park closer to the entrance to the City Hall/Library walkway in order for it to be more open, yet still serve the same clientele.
Some residents expressed concern this spring with the look of this park. I wish to extend a huge word of thanks to our tireless Director of Public Works, Beatrice Newman, and her dedicated staff. In recent weeks they have spent countless hours on site. First and foremost, they removed three dangerous pieces of equipment for the benefit of the children. They added 75 tons of new sand and fixed the swings. All they must do now is repair some of the grass which was damaged due to the transportation of the sand.
I know the residents will truly appreciate this.
