2020 Summer Season
We hope that everyone is healthy and safe. Nothing is more important than the health and security of our families.
We all very much want to move toward normalcy and get back into the pool and seeing friends at the park. However, the Board of Trustees along with the park staff must provide a safe and secure setting that has guidelines that will minimize risk to the best of our ability. We must be certain that we are doing everything possible to insure the safety residents who use our facilities.
Here are a few updates:
- The pool will open JULY 6th. We carefully researched every protocol that we can get our hands on. That information was reviewed by a steering committee of pool/park staff, Village officials, and residents. Information was condensed into a one page list of guidelines that will be emailed through the SWIFT Robo call system next week. Please be sure to register for the SWIFT 911 system in order to stay informed. https://portalv4.swiftreach.com/Portal.aspx?c=204666
Read the New & Modified Pool Rules
- Residents MUST wear face masks at the various check-in points in the park when social distancing is not possible. This includes the entrance gate, pool, and tennis. Residents are also asked to wear a face mask when going indoors to use bathrooms facilities in order to ensure the safety of all park patrons.
- In order to accommodate the needs of many residents, bike riding and scootering will be permitted in the park from sunrise until 10am. People engaging in those activities should do so in a safe manner and be vigilant of other park patrons at the facility. Electrically run motorized bikes and scooters are still prohibited.
- The playground will be disinfected each day at 2pm and 7:45pm. This process takes 30 minutes. The playground will be closed for that time period so that it can be safely treated and rinsed.
- Stickers to park in the parking lot are REQUIRED. Please go to the Police Department any day of the week, at any hour with your car registration papers to get one.
- Park cards are REQUIRED for pool and park entry. Each adult and child coming into the facility will need to be checked into our system. Please contact Village Hall (516) 482-8283 to set up an appointment if you require a NEW CARD (new residents). For those who have expired cards, please mail in or drop off in the box outside Village Hall the RENEWAL FORM that was recently sent to your home. Renewal forms are also available at the park front entrance.
We are looking forward to a safe and enjoyable summer at the park! Hope to see you all there.

Mayor‘s Message to the Residents
As you may know Long Island has met Phase 1 of the Governor’s Reopening Plan this week which meant retailers could open for curbside pickup and residential and commercial construction was permitted to resume. We expect to begin Phase II soon which will include professional services, retail, administrative support and real estate. Phase 3 will include the opening of restaurants.
We have had MANY inquiries about opening of our pool. I am sure you understand, it is dependent on our reaching Phase 4 of the Plan which will include the arts, entertainment and recreation operations, and subject to New York State and Nassau County Department of Health Regulations which must be adhered to for safe pool use.
In the meantime for everyone’s safety PLEASE REMEMBER masks, social distancing and disposal of gloves and wipes in your own disposable bag before putting it into the trash.

Natural Gas Safety
USING YOUR SENSES
A gas leak is often recognized by SMELL – Natural gas is colorless and odorless. A distinctive, pungent odor, similar to rotten eggs, is added so that you’ll recognize it quickly. Not all transmission lines are odorized.
SIGHT – You may see a white cloud, mist, fog, bubbles in standing water, or blowing dust. You may also see vegetation that appears to be dead or dying for no apparent reason.
SOUND - You may hear an unusual noise like roaring, hissing or whistling.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF YOU SUSPECT A LEAK
MOVE to a safe environment
CALL 911 or 1-800-490-0045 in Nassau
DO NOT smoke or operate electrical switches or appliances. These items may produce a spark that might ignite the gas and cause an explosion.
DO NOT assume someone else will report the condition. Provide the exact location, including cross streets, and advise if any digging activities are going on in the area.
IF YOU SMELL GAS - ACT FAST
