The following is a press release from the offices of Councilman Lew Fidler:
City Councilman Lew Fidler announced today that the long-awaited comfort station, which was built as part of the re-development of Seba Park, has opened, just in time for peak season. Those who visit this state-of-the-art park will now be able to utilize on-site restroom facilities, and will no longer need to cut short their time at the park when nature calls.
In recent years, Councilman Fidler has allocated a total of $2.33 million to Seba Park to fund the skate park, tot lot, state-of-the-art playground and its subsequent expansion, and comfort station. A symbolic ribbon cutting will take place at the Gerritsen Beach Little League opening day ceremony on Saturday, April 21st.
Councilman Fidler stated, “I am pleased that our Seba Avenue comfort station will be open in time for the little league baseball season. Certainly, our little leaguers….and their parents and siblings….will all get some welcome relief knowing that it is there. I have always said that Gerritsen Beach is entitled to first class facilities, and this is just part of keeping that promise. If folks can recall 11 years ago, Seba Park was a rubble strewn lot and nothing more. It is now a truly terrific neighborhood park and with the addition that is coming soon, will be even better. These are your tax dollars at work, and I am pleased to have worked with Assemblyman Maisel, Gerritsen Beach Property Owners’ Association, Gerritsen Beach Cares and others to have gotten this done for Beach residents.”
