Kingsbridge Heights Community Center

Kingsbridge, Bronx
Founded in 1997

The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center play space and community garden were made possible in 1997 with funds from the Louis and Anne Abrons Foundation. The space was substantially upgraded in 2007 with an expanded garden and an amphitheater.  The space continues to flourish, providing Bronx children and families with an opportunity to grow food, learn about nature, and gain nutritional understanding for healthier eating choices.
