The ceremony was attended by school officials, parents and students. Ossining Board of Education President Bill Kress presented Mr. Ginsburg with a certificate of appreciation in a reception held at the school library.
Park Principal Carrieann Sipos told Mr. Ginsburg that the addition of the new playground has contributed to the overall well-being of Park students, meeting their physical and health needs. “We love the slides,” she said, “especially the fast slide.” Superintendent of Schools Raymond Sanchez told Mr. Ginsburg that Park students “are loving the new playground. And when they smile, we smile.”
“We are very proud to help one of the most outstanding school districts in the region. This donation to the School District and others we have made to the Village are part of our ongoing commitment to investing in the communities where we build our developments,” said Mr. Ginsburg. In addition to the $400,000 donation to the School District, GDC has donated $600,000 to the Village of Ossining for downtown improvements.
GDC is currently constructing Harbor Square, a 188-unit luxury rental apartment complex with a 6,000-square-foot restaurant on the Ossining waterfront. Harbor Square is scheduled for completion in spring 2016.
