Town of Oyster Bay awarded $250K grant to rebuild playgrounds

The Town of Oyster Bay has been awarded a $250,000 grant from New York State to rebuild playgrounds in Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park and at Roundtree Drive Park.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino offered his gratitude to New York State Assemblyman Steve Stern for his work securing the funds.

“Continuing improvements to our parks and recreational facilities have been a top priority for my administration,” Saladino said in a town statement, “and we graciously thank Assemblyman Stern for securing our fair share of state funds to construct new playgrounds in the community.”

The playgrounds in each park will be replaced with new, state-of-the-art playgrounds that include swings. The town has replaced over 80 playgrounds in just the last few years.

“I am so proud to partner with Supervisor Saladino and our local leaders in the Town of Oyster Bay to provide resources for new state-of-the-art recreational facilities in Plainview,” Stern said in the statement.  “I look forward to continuing our partnership and delivering our fair share from Albany to enhance and protect our suburban neighborhood quality of life.”
