Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson kicked off the 2018 summer pool season today while unveiling newly renovated restroom and shower facilities, new lounge chairs, sunshades, umbrellas, picnic tables and dining chairs.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “Our parks and community pools are a backyard oasis for many young families and senior citizens. From new restrooms to new lounge chairs and sunshades, our community pools are the perfect place to cool off and enjoy all summer long. Bring the family down and make your summer destination our backyard.”
Throughout the winter and into the spring season, the Department of Public Works renovated the Town’s four community pools. Restrooms now feature upgraded stainless steel and porcelain fixtures. New faucets, showers, partitions, piping and electrical work were all installed by Town employees.
“As a mother with young children, I know how important it is for families to have a fun and comfortable place to keep cool all summer long,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “Our new and improved facilities make spending a day at one of our Town pools even more wonderful while building summer memories with family and friends that will last for a lifetime.”
The Town of Oyster Bay operates five pool facilities, including Bethpage Community Park, Marjorie Post Community Park, Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park, Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, and a saltwater pool at Tappen Beach in Glenwood Landing.
