Open Letter to Manhasset From Park District
I would like to provoke an open and frank discussion as to the lack of park facilities within the Manhasset Park District. The park district was started back in 1921 with the acquisition of the triangle park on Park Avenue and Nassau Avenue, which is less than 1/10 of an acre. We did not acquire any additional land until Nassau County deeded us three parcels on Shelter Rock Road. The Manhasset War Memorial on Northern Blvd. and Shelter Rock Road, which is 1/80 of an acre; the parcel next to Lord and Taylor's on Shelter Rock Road which is one acre; and lastly the parcel that is to the right of Country Club Drive and Shelter Rock Road, which is about four acres. In total we have less than 5 1/2 acres of parkland.
