Downtown needs a space for young children to play on the playground and teenagers to play basketball. There are playgrounds all around NYC. New Rochelle should have more playgrounds as well. Children need to have the ability to play outside and downtown needs that. Downtown parents need to have a place where they can bring their children before/after patronizing the downtown businesses. Playgrounds are something that is open to everyone and does not cost patrons anything, therefore everyone is included. Those that do not own a car and live downtown would visit this playground and basketball court.
