Pickle Park Project

Goal and Summary

Goal: 

To have the Harborfields School District and the Town of Huntington enter into a 15 year long term supervision agreement for the school district property known as Pickle Park. The property would stay school district owned and town maintained. 

Summary: 

Since 1972 when Broadway School closed, the playground has been used as a public park. 

Over the years the Town of Huntington has replaced and installed new equipment in the park, then the Harborfields Public Library did the same in 2000 after a public referendum from the Harborfields School District to give the Library District 65'x12' of the property so the library could complete and expand their parking lot for patrons. 

Through the years the public has continued to use and enjoy this public space in many ways. In the open field there are pick up football games, Frisbee playing, young children running safely within the fenced boundaries. 

As the Harborfields School District and the Town of Huntington continue their negotiations we hope there will be a resolution to protect this park. 

The current plan - 2015 - is to make Pickle Park ADA accessible- so ALL children and community members can enjoy this lovely community park!
