Further improving upon various parks facilities, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson today announced that playgrounds throughout the Town are undergoing vast enhancements and, in some cases, complete replacements.
“Work is underway to improve and replace playground equipment throughout the Town of Oyster Bay,” stated Supervisor Saladino. “My administration has begun the process of replacing dilapidated playgrounds with all new equipment, bringing a brand new, state-of-the-art playgrounds to parks throughout the Town. Playgrounds in need of enhancement are also receiving a facelift so that children can continue to safely enjoy them for years to come.”
“In the coming weeks, residents can see additional playground improvements at communities throughout our Town, including parks in Syosset, Plainview, Massapequa and Farmingdale,” Councilwoman Johnson added.
Parks and parklets that will see new playgrounds and enhancements include:

Playgrounds in need for flooring replacement will receive new Fibar surfacing, an engineering wood fiber, as its base. Some, including the large playground at Ellsworth Allen Park, are planned for new mat installation in the spring.
