Elected officials cut the ribbon on a brand new $9.8 million athletic field renovation at Queens College on Monday, May 9.
Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, Assemblymember Nily Rozic, Councilmember Francisco Moya and former Councilmember Rory Lancman joined Queens College President Frank Wu for an inaugural lap around the new track.
The $9.8 million project began in January 2021, with Assemblymember Rozic helping to secure a $500,000 grant for track renovation.
In addition to Queens College, the track will serve students at Townsend Harris High School, John Bowne High School and will be available to community members at-large.
The new soccer field will be used by division II level athletes at Queens College, and for intramural events and physical education classes.
On social media, Moya praised the completion of the athletic field and track.
“The future Footballers will be coming straight out of Queens College,” he tweeted.
