WOODBURY - A Woodbury playground was dedicated Sunday to one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Maddie's Playground, located outside of the Woodbury United Methodist Church on Woodbury Road, was dedicated to 6-year-old Madeline Hsu.

Members of Hsu's family live in the Woodbury area. They say she would play at that playground when she visited. 

The Woodbury playground was beautified with a garden, a new playhouse and pirate sandbox.

This is the second playground dedicated to Maddie on Long Island. As News 12 reported, a playground was built in her honor at West Islip Beach just last month.
