During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mayor Mike Spano expressed his delight and highlighted the significance of open spaces like Pitkin Park in fostering the healthy development of children.
"Today we're enjoying a series of ribbon-cuttings to rededicate for some of our city parks with Pitkin Park. Having this open space is so, so crucial to their development," said Spano.
