The Best Secret In Town!
Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.
Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. Games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities are run during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
Activities, except for trips, are free to anyone attending. Registration is not necessary. A child may attend any day they choose. The children are supervised while in the park, but the children attending must be able to come and go to the park as they please or a parent or child care provider must be in attendance while the child participates. This program can not be used as babysitting.
When: Monday through Friday beginning Monday, June 30 and ending Friday, Aug. 15.
Where: Nassau Haven, Edgemere, Tullamore, Grove, and Hemlock Parks
Time: Beginning 10 a.m. and running throughout the day. Check your local park for posted schedules.

The Senior Center Expansion and Rehabilitation Project took a major step forward this month when the Garden City Board of Trustees unanimously voted in a special meeting to accept the gift of the model house from the Doubleday Court Development on Franklin Avenue. Project developers, The Engel Burman Group, graciously donated the house to the
Incorporated Village of Garden City. The one-story structure was originally built to serve as a model and sales office for the Franklin Avenue project.
“We are glad to have The Engel Burman Group as part of our village and thank them for this most generous gift. We look forward to providing a state-of-the art facility for our seniors in Garden City,” Mayor John Watras said.
