Registration Now Underway for Town Summer Recreation Program

Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson announces that registration for the Town’s Summer Recreation Program, open to children ages 4-12, is now underway.  This year’s program once again includes a full-day option at two locations: Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa and Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, where campers can stay on site through the lunch hour.  Those not interested in the new full-day option can still attend one of the Town’s traditional Summer Recreation Programs, located at Ellsworth Allen Park in Farmingdale, Harry Tappen Beach in Glen Head, Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay and Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park.
