On May 5, the Department of Parks and Recreation held a lively event at Astoria Park featuring music, performances and activities in an effort to preserve the Astoria Pool Olympic High Dive by voting for it in the Partners in Preservation grant contest. Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. attended the festival and played bass with local Greek American rock band, Iskandar. “The Astoria park pool and diving board have been a centerpiece in the Astoria community since 1936, and now the diving board will be the literal centerpiece for our upcoming performance space,” said Vallone.
