Town Officials Announce Closure of Town Parks
North Hempstead, NY - Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board have announced the closure of Town park facilities in an effort to help promote the importance of social distancing and to help limit the spread of coronavirus.
As of Monday, March 23 all Town parks including playgrounds, sports fields, and bathrooms will be closed to the public. This also includes Town beaches and the Town Dock. The closures will help prevent the gathering of large groups and congregation of people in close proximity to each other.
“We encourage our residents to go outside and to get fresh air and physical exercise. However we cannot emphasize enough that this must be a solitary recreational activity. It is imperative that you maintain a distance of at least six feet apart to help slow the spread of coronavirus,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “Together we can do our part to help save lives during this public health emergency.”
