This is a sure indication that summer fun is coming to an end and that school is about to resume.
Kathleen Henderson, the wonderful New York City Parks Department recreations coordinator in Carroll Park, just finishing another successful summer season on Monday. She will be back in spring, but until her return, neighborhood kids will have to wait for the organized games, arts and craft projects and riding toys which Kathleen provides in the park during the warmer season.
Kathleen has been such a part of Carroll Park for so many years that she has seen neighborhood toddlers grow into teens. She knows most of the kids by name and for the little ones, a visit to Carroll Park would not be the same without her. The community and the park is extremely lucky to have her.
For those of you who would like to say goodbye to her, she will be in the park house till Friday.
Have a great fall and winter, Kathleen. See you in April.
