OLCOTT ― Niagara County Legislator John Syracuse joined county officials at Krull Park in Olcott Tuesday to announce the opening of the park’s Pine Grove Playground.

The new play area has been named the “Pine Grove Playground” to remember the history of Krull Park and its past when the North end of the park was referred to as “Pine Grove,” adjacent to the Olcott Beach Hotel.  The new facility includes a pine tree theme with modern play equipment to replace the existing playground which was originally installed in the 1990’s.

The completion of the playground is part of a series of improvements to all County parks. The project’s success is a result of the efforts of Niagara County Department of Public Works under the direction of Niagara County Legislature, including Legislator John Syracuse, who chairs the Infrastructure and Facilities Committee. In addition, a State SAMS Grant was awarded through the efforts of Senator Rob Ortt, providing essential funding to the County-wide parkland project that comprises Krull, Oppenheim, Bond Lake, Royalton Ravine, and West Canal Parks.

“I’d like to acknowledge the efforts of Niagara County Department of Public Works Commissioner Garret Meal, his staff, and Senator Rob Ortt,” said Syracuse, R-Newfane. “Krull Park holds a tremendous amount of history here, and I couldn’t be happier with the playground’s development for both our residents and visitors to enjoy.”
