The Marine Park Community Association would like to address the recent discussion regarding Marine Park funding.
The Marine Park Community Association wants to inform the community that the views, thoughts, and opinions expressed belong solely to that person and or persons, and not necessarily the opinions, views, and thoughts of our organization.
The Marine Park Community Association has been in existence for ninety-four years. We have a history of working with all members of the community – Politicians, Police, Fire, Health Agencies, Parks, Sanitation, Transportation, National Grid, Con Edison, etc. for the betterment of the Quality of Life for the residents of Marine Park and surrounding communities.
The Marine Park Community Association would like to see our local politicians and City agencies pursue recouping this money. There are other community groups in Marine Park – the Salt Marsh Alliance, the Marine Park Alliance, the Madison/Marine/Homecrest Civic Association - and the MPCA works closely with them to address the issues in Marine Park – potholes, playgrounds deteriorating, bathrooms not working properly, water ponding, lack of staffing, etc.. We had a community meeting last April with the Parks Department and we are still waiting for some of these issues to be resolved. Lack of funds is critical to making these improvements and we need to find the money to accomplish this.
Having stated all the above, we have to move forward to work together to accomplish the goal of restoring Marine Park.
Start of Pickle Ball for “Active Adults & Seniors at the MPAA on Friday’s throughout summer, 9am for Beginner instruction & 10am to 12 noon, open play. Free to all MPAA members, come out & try it or watch this National game take off in Marine Park, Brooklyn NY.
Former City Councilman
1956 - 2019
It is with heartfelt sadness that we have learned of the passing of our former City Councilman Lew Fidler. Lew was more than a City Councilman – he was a neighbor who cared about his community and all those who needed his assistance. He was passionate about many problems in our City, as we can attest to when he attended our Marine Park Community Association monthly meetings. Through the years he was an advocate for our community and supported many projects in Marine Park and the Hendrick I. Lott House. His presence will be greatly missed.
Our sympathy goes out to his wife Robin, their two sons, family and friends. May the love that surrounds you be a source of comfort during this difficult time.
The Funeral for Lew Fidler will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 at 11:00am, at IJ Morris Funeral Home, located at 1700 Coney Island Avenue. (Between Avenue M and Avenue N).
Shiva details will be shared as they become available.

Steven Pollard, 1988-2019
The Marine Park Community Association wishes to extend their sincere condolences to the family of New York City firefighter Steven Pollard, a resident of our Marine Park Community. In an attempt to help victims of a car accident he lost his life trying to assist others, a reminder of the risks our first responders face every day. Our condolences also to the Fire Department family and members of Ladder Co. 170 on the tragic loss of their fellow firefighter. We join the city in mourning the loss of such a young person performing his job with a bright future ahead of him. May he rest in peace.

33rd Annual Halloween/Fall Festival
October 20, 2018
The Marine Park Community Association would like to thank Geoffrey Martin, Park & Recreation Manager and his Parks staff for their assistance in preparing the Fall Festival event site for our 33rd Annual Fall Festival. Upon our request, his staff mowed the lawn area; set up additional garbage pails and installed snow fencing for the pumpkin patch and cemetery area as well as revising both areas when it was decided the areas would be too small to accommodate 2,500 lbs.of pumpkins.
There were many smiling faces as the children picked out their pumpkins; took pictures in the pumpkin patch and then decorated them; ate their free popcorn while watching the Puppet show and participated in many craft activities. Attendance at this event was estimated to be approximately 3,000.
We could not continue this annual event without the support of the Parks Department and our local elected politicians. Thank you to Sen. Marty Golden for his partnership with the MPCA as well as NYC Councilman Alan Maisel who has provided the opportunity for the MPCA to apply for grants to help fund events like this for the community. Additional thanks to the 30 student volunteers from James Madison H.S. and community volunteers; Partnership for Parks for their Puppet Show; the Fire Department; the Police Department and Auxiliary; the Kids Mobile (Library); N.Y. Road Runners and Aviator Sports.
