An open house and ribbon cutting celebrating the completion of the New York Junior League’s renovation of the Tony Dapolito Recreation Center and James J. Walker Park, at 3 Clarkson St. between Seventh Ave. South and Hudson St., will take place between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sat., June 21.
Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe and Junior League Acting President Mari Dubois, along with Frances Dapolito, will open the event, which will feature bocce lessons, games, face painting, refreshments and an Italian musical troupe.
