North Hempstead Celebrates Fuschillo Park Reopening with Ribbon Cutting Celebration
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and Council Member Robert Troiano are proud to announce that Charles J. Fuschillo park has reopened after the Town embarked on an extensive renovation project to bring major improvements to the park. Supervisor DeSena and Council Member Troiano celebrated the reopening with a ribbon cutting celebration on Saturday, July 22 that was attended by hundreds of residents.
“The long-awaited multi-million-dollar rehabilitation of Charles Fuschillo Park in Carle Place is officially complete, and we are so excited that it has reopened to the community,” Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena said. “The finished product is a truly spectacular community park that has received its most extensive set of upgrades in nearly 30 years, and we are so excited for families and children in Carle Place to enjoy these new amenities. This park rehabilitation will greatly enhance the quality of life of our residents, and also represents a new benchmark for accessibility in our Town as the newly installed playground is the first in the Town of North Hempstead which is fully accessible for children with disabilities to enjoy.”
“After many years of visioning, public participation, planning, and designing, we are excited that the renovation project at Fuschillo Park has been completed,” said Council Member Troiano. “Our goal throughout this process has been to transform Fuschillo Park into an exciting recreational destination for our residents – especially those in the Carle Place community. I am thrilled that residents are now able to experience the new Fuschillo Park.”
The recently completed renovation project at Charles J. Fuschillo Park included a new playground, a splash park, outdoor fitness equipment, a shaded picnic area, games, and more.
The grand opening celebration featured a ribbon cutting, live music provided by the “Yes We Can” Band, a DJ, lawn games, a hot dog stand, and ice cream truck.
