Two hundred children, all under the age of eight and in the majority Jewish, yesterday attended the reopening of the roof playground of P. S. 31, Monroe and Gouverneur streets on the lower East Side.

The playground, which is now open for its third summer, is a project of the Community Councils of the City of New York. August Hecksher and the Altman Foundation are among the contributors to the Councils’ funds collected for the foundation of such playgrounds throughout the city.

Ida Oppenheimer, of the Lower East Side Community Council, is supervisor of the playground which will be open all Summer for five days a week from 10 a. m. to 5:15 p. m.
