Comments:

Holds a special significance, having been renamed in honor of Police Officer Reinaldo Salgado, known fondly as "Rei" in the community. Officer Salgado, who served in the 81st Precinct, was deeply involved in youth programs and is remembered for his dedication to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in the South Bronx, Salgado was the first in his family to graduate from college before joining the Police Department. The playground features modern facilities such as basketball and handball courts, playgrounds, public restrooms, and spray showers, making it an inclusive space for recreation and community gatherings. Its location between Monroe St. to Madison St. adds to its accessibility and charm, ensuring it remains a cherished destination within Brooklyn.
