Assemblyman Brian Curran,
County Executive Ed Mangano and the West Hempstead Community Support &
Civic Association spent Sunday afternoon at Hall's Pond Park cleaning up the
parkland and water.
More than 100 West Hempstead neighbors of all ages – children, parents and seniors – came turned out to participate in addition to Boy Scout Troop 613, Saint Thomas the Apostle Youth Group as well as students & parents from the West Hempstead School District. Their teamwork was vital in making a difference and noticeable improvements to the park.
Participants tended soil, painted railings & fences, weeded and planted new mums, used leaf blowers to get dead and fallen foliage out of the parkland, skimmed & cleaned the pond and cleared other debris.
“I’m very happy that the cleanup I co-sponsored with County Executive Mangano has made a positive difference for the West Hempstead community. Keeping our parkland pristine for our children as well as all our neighbors should always be a priority. I’m glad to have been able to beautify the area’s open space,” said Assemblyman Brian Curran.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano stated, “Together with Assemblyman Curran and the West Hempstead Civic Association, we are beautifying Halls Pond so that it serves as a gem for our local community. I thank all those that participated in helping make West Hempstead a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Assemblyman Curran and County Executive Mangano plan on holding another Hall’s Pond Park Cleanup in the spring.
