A few weeks ago the revamp of J.J. Byrne/Washington Park on 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th streets began. Since then, a big fence has gone up around the eastern section of the park, and a bunch of ground has been dug up. The renovations will result in more distinct play areas for kids of different ages and new, adult-themed spaces like a seating area with a cafe table.
