This even was made possible with a grant from the Home Depot Foundation.
The late war veteran and Glen Cove resident Ralph Mastalio was immortalized with the dedication of “Big Ralph” Park in his memory on June 13, 1965 three years after his passing at age 72. Mastalio served in both World Wars I and II receiving the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his bravery.
Over the years the monument made in his memory by the Sons of Italy was removed leaving no evidence of the park’s rich history. It has now been replaced with the assistance of the Department of Public Works and a flagpole and benches have been added with technical support courtesy of Parks and Recreation.
