A brand new playground is currently under construction at the Glen Cove Golf Course (Stanco Park). The playground will be fully fenced in, with soft surface flooring and colorful up-to-date equipment and swings for children ages 2 – 12. It is expected to be “play-ready” within days, with Phase Two additions such as benches and completion of fencing in the coming weeks.
“Glen Cove is a wonderful place for families. Making improvements to our parks is a top priority,” said Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi. “As a parent, I recognize the need for better, safer playgrounds for our children. It is exciting to construct this brand new facility.”
“My thanks to Presiding Officer Diane Yatauro for her help in securing community rehabilitation funding for the construction of the playground,” Mayor Suozzi continued. “Her efforts support improvements in Glen Cove including streetlights throughout the downtown and tennis court rehabilitation at Old Tappan Road Park.”
The playground will feature climbers, slides, music makers, and accessible ramps and pretend play areas. The barrier-free design will offer a variety of movement, play and challenges to children of different skills and abilities.
