Placita Infantil at Nuestros Ninos Daycare

Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Founded 1991, rebuilt in 2011

Placita Infantil Playground opened in 1991 and is operated by Nuestros Ninos Daycare. It is used daily by hundreds of daycare students. The original space included front and rear play areas that were separated by a large patio shaded by a pergola. Ornamental plants and evergreens provide color year-round. 

In 2011, GrowNYC partnered with KaBOOM! to rejuvenate the playspace, working with many volunteers from the community to install a brand new playground and built benches, murals, a childrens garden, picnic tables, chess board table tops and more.



GrowNYC's garden program recently built a new garden at the New York City Housing Authority's PS 139 Conversion senior housing development in Harlem. Read more about the garden and check out a timelapse of the build.
