Christopher J. Igneri passed away nearly four years ago and was a former Parks & Rec. Director for most of his 35 years working for the department. He was also a certified referee who coached basketball for various local organizations including Tottenville High School. In honor of his community service, NYC Parks has rededicated the park on Schmidts Lane between Manor Road and La Guardia Avenue.
The Christopher J. Igneri Playground offers areas for guests to hang out and play, including handball courts, swings, basketball courts, and a water play area. We at SI FunPark are excited to serve our neighborhood alongside organizations and projects that offer fun activities for families and visitors of all ages.
