Town Unveils New Inclusive Playground In Massapequa

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Councilman Steve Labriola and Councilwoman Laura Maier recently joined with representatives from the Plainedge School District and the local community to celebrate the grand opening of a new inclusive playground on Nottinghill Drive in Massapequa. Built in partnership with Rocco’s Voice for Autism and the Joseph LeRoy and Ann C. Warner Fund, the playground features appropriate and engaging sensory equipment for special needs children.

“We are so pleased to work with such a dedicated and caring community to bring this wonderful new facility to our Town,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The commitment of organizations such as Rocco’s

Voice for Autism to help promote awareness and services for families of children with autism is truly inspirational, and we’re also proud to name this day ‘Rocco’s Voice for Autism Day’ in the Town of Oyster Bay.”

Thanks to financial support from the Joseph LeRoy and Ann C. Warner Fund and the Town of Oyster Bay, construction of an inclusive playground on Nottinghill Drive in Massapequa got underway earlier this year after a groundbreaking ceremony was held in the spring.

“When I first met Sonny and Angela Spagnuolo, the founders of Rocco’s Voice for Autism and the parents of a son with Autism, I was incredibly inspired by their dedication to enriching the lives of children with special needs,” Councilman Labriola said. “I am pleased to have worked with them to help make this great facility a reality in the community.”
