Extend hours at Town pools

Supervisor cites high temperatures and humid weather as factor in Town's decision

With high temperatures and humidity expected throughout the month of August, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced that hours of operation at Town pools have been extended to 8:30pm on Friday nights for the remainder of the season.

“Enjoy Friday night family-time and beat the heat at one of our Town pools this August,” said Supervisor Saladino.  “Pool hours of operations have been extended and I invite residents to come down to one of our five community pools and make it your backyard home-away-from-home.”

 In addition to the extended Friday evening hours at all Town pools, weekday hours of operation were extended for the season beyond 7:00pm at the following locations and all resident pass-holders are welcome to visit any pool during this extended timeframe:

 ·         Mondays until 8:30pm - Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park;

·         Tuesdays until 8:30pm - Syosset-Woodbury Community Park;

·         Wednesday until 8:30pm - Bethpage Community Park;

·         Thursdays until 8:30pm - Marjorie R. Post Community Park in Massapequa; and

·         Fridays until 30 minutes prior to sunset - Tappen Beach. 

 

All Town pools feature recent upgrades, including new 50x20 foot cantilever sunshades, umbrellas and picnic tables as well as new lounge and dining chairs.  Earlier this week, Supervisor Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson announced plans to remodel restroom and shower facilities at Town pools in time for next summer season.  

 Town pools are open through Labor Day, and hours of operation were recently extended by the Town Board to accommodate working families.  For more information, please visit www.oysterbaytown.com or call (516) 797-4128.
