Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Councilman Louis Imbroto and Councilman Thomas Hand recently joined with the Oyster Bay Lions Club in unveiling a new harbor overlook and beautification project at Beekman Beach in Oyster Bay.
“This is a perfect example of local government and the community working cooperatively to accomplish something meaningful and positive for the community,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The Oyster Bay Lions Club has a long and distinguished legacy of contributing to our community and this beautification project is another example of the incredible impact they have on our Town to make it a better place.”
The project, encompassing a new patio, walkway, flagpole, benches and landscaping, was completely financed and facilitated through the generous support of the Oyster Bay Lions Club. The Club raised nearly $50,000 in private donations. To enhance the project, the Town paved the parking lot and protected this precious site for residents only.
“Beekman Beach is an area that has long been appreciated by our residents for its serenity and incredibly scenic views of Oyster Bay Harbor,” said Councilman Imbroto. “This renovation project will further enhance this already beautiful park and provide amenities that will allow our residents to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.”
Councilman Hand concluded, “We are thrilled to unveil this beautification project and invite residents back to Beekman Beach for a more enjoyable experience. I thank the Oyster Bay Lions Club for their service to our community and commitment to this project. Volunteerism is what makes our community an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Beekman Beach is situated on the western waterfront, just west of the Town’s Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, Beach and Marina. For more information, please visit www.OysterBayTown.com.
