Alpha Crawford Sunshine Park

1638 Anthony Avenue
Bathgate, Bronx
Founded in 1988

Originally a GreenThumb site; a Lots-For-Tots park/playground opened in 1988 with funding from the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Community Fund's Inc., through GrowNYC's Plant-A-Lot program. This site was used by the neighboring child care center for many years. Now an inactive site, mature ornamental trees and shrubs are all that remain.
