Special Message

Recently the Town of North Hempstead opened its parks and fields for passive use. As such, effective Wednesday, June 24, 2020, the secondary school campus only will be open for passive use by the community from 4 pm to 8 pm (Monday through Friday) and  8 am to 8 pm (Saturday and Sunday).  In addition, Memorial Field will be unlocked daily from 8 am to 8 pm. Use of two tennis courts at Memorial Field will be permitted; Basketball, however, will not be permitted at this time.

Please note that the opening of our fields is not intended to allow group play. It does, however, offer additional opportunities to get some fresh air and exercise. We remind all residents that they must follow precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all. This includes maintaining social distancing guidelines and staying 6 feet apart. In addition, in accordance with New York State guidelines, residents should wear a mask when social distancing cannot be maintained. 

Please note that access to the fields will not be permitted when community camps are in operation. Camp schedules are currently being finalized, and it is anticipated that such use will occur between 9 am and 12 pm.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
