WILLIAMSBRIDGE - Residents in Williamsbridge say they are eagerly awaiting the opening of a new park in their neighborhood that has seen its opening delayed.

Part of a $13.5 million deal that would allow the Croton Water Filtration Center to move to the area, the Williamsbridge Oval Playground project has been under way for more than two years.

The project's first phase included a new track and soccer field, and has already been completed. The Department of Parks and Recreation originally said Phase 2, the playground, was set to finish by the end of the spring, but it remains closed.

Conti, the subcontractor for the playground, says the project will not open until July due to severe winter weather that held back construction.
