A team of EBC leaders has made significant progress in advocating for improvements to the 142-acre Highland Park, including winning $9.3 million for the repair and upgrade of paths around the park’s former reservoirs and planning for future improvements. EBC leaders continue to work to ensure that current Highland Park facilities are repaired and badly needed new fields, paths and other facilities are built. Some of these efforts were highlighted in a 2009 Daily News Opinion Editorial by Bishop Daid Benke and Father Mariano Cisco. NY Daily News Article.
