Councilwoman Erin King Sweeney, Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby and Councilman Anthony D’Esposito are pleased to announce that several park improvements projects are coming to Baldwin Town Park . The Town Board members toured the park with the Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Danny Lino, and met with hardworking CSEA Local 880 members, who will be completing most of the improvements.
“I am excited that we will be making these important infrastructure and facility improvements to the park that will modernize these facilities for all of our residents,” said King Sweeney. “I am committed to improving Baldwin Park, a beaufiful facility for the residents of Hempstead Town.”
The ballfield bathroom renovations have already commenced with the majority of the work being done in-house by parks department employees, including the demolition of the bathroom interior as well as the installation of new toilets, urinals, sinks, mirror and hand dryers. New LED lighting will illuminate the newly refurbished bathroom. Handicap accessible partitions and new epoxy coated floors and walls will be installed by a contractor.
“It was wonderful to review and inspect the plans and upgrades that will be implemented to the bathroom facilities at Baldwin Town Park,” added Goosby. “I look forward to the nicer weather and warmer temperatures so that residents can begin to enjoy these renovations.”
In addition, fields are ready for eager players for the sping season with routine maintenance on all of the fields and dugouts.
“Our talented CSEA workforce has been busy beautifing Baldwin Park in time for our youngest neighbors to enjoy every inch of the facility,” concluded D’Esposito. “I am grateful to them for their excellent workmanship and look forward to many days of fun at the park for all of our residents.”
