Carroll Gardens

Long considered the den mother of Carroll Park, Kathleen Henderson finally got her dues when she received honors as a Woman of Distinction by state Sen. Daniel Squadron (D–Brooklyn Heights) and was feted with a celebration in the state capital.

And it’s about time.

Our pal Kathleen has been instrumental in the complete transformation of the park during the 16 years that she has held reign, going way above and beyond what’s expected. From entertaining and taking care of the Children’s Garden to keeping the park safe and welcoming, she has improved the park and made it the best place to come to for the whole community. Squadron was just too thrilled to present this award to her.

“It’s hard to overstate just how loved and appreciated Kathleen is by the community,” Squadron told Standing O. “The dedication and kindness she brings with her everyday is an example for all.”

You said it.
