Greenport’s parks could be receiving a facelift after Village Board members voted to seek bids for several upgrades to spruce up the Third and Fifth street playgrounds and basketball courts.

Members are seeking a cost estimate on three projects that include replacing the fence at Third Street Park and resurfacing the basketball courts on both Third and Fifth streets. 

Last week, Trustee Dave Murray first alerted the village board to the deteriorating condition of the playgrounds— taking particular issue with the fence at the Third Street Park.

“I’m so scared the kids are going to run out after a ball and get hit by a car,” Mr. Murray said.

The board agreed the concerns needed to be addressed for safety reasons and voted unanimously to seek out contractors for the work during Monday’s meeting.
