Stringham Park Expansion Project
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on May 10, 2018 with County Executive Molinaro and Senator Sue Serino, in honor of the newly expanded and enhanced Stringham Park playground.
This project was made possible by the receipt of a Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $100,000 and an additional $67,000 from the parks capital project fund in the Town of LaGrange.
The enhancements and additions include several new pieces of equipment: glider, ten spin, swing bays, inclusive swing seat, bumblebee rider, climber, Alex's Lemonade Stand, musical instruments, and sensory panels, as well as poured in place rubber surfacing. We have a few more special things planned for this area so stay tuned!
