Children joined Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman to cut the ribbon for a new playground at Good Ground Park in Hampton Bays. Thanks to a generous $50,000 donation by Douglas Elliman Real Estate a new playground for children ages 5-11 was built adjacent to the toddler playground which opened last year.
The ceremony began with a Flag Day recognition with the American Legion Post 924 color guard and the National Anthem sung by Lindsay Dunn. Members of the local community including the Hampton Bays Chamber of Commerce, the Hampton Bays Civic Association and the Hampton Bays Beautification Association along with several local business owners attended the event to learn how the Park can be used for community activities. Several officials and employees of Douglas Elliman joined in the ceremony.
Coming soon, the Park will also feature a walking trail around the perimeter of the park. This year about a dozen concerts and other events, are planned for the sunken amphitheater including “Movie Nights” and the premier of “Shakespeare in the Park”.
