On May 22, the New York City Playgrounds team celebrated the opening of PS 140/Edward K. Ellington School in Jamaica, Queens.  Located within a 10-minute walk of over 11,000 New Yorkers, the new community playground in Queens was transformed from an asphalt lot into a vibrant green community playground following The Trust for Public Land’s participatory design process.
