We were pleased to have Brookhaven Town Commissioner of Parks, Ed Morris as the guest speaker at our June meeting. Mr. Morris discussed some of the plans the Parks department has in the works for our community. Those of you who have been to Shirley Beach at Smith Landing saw the improvement to the facility and grounds last summer thanks to the partnership between the Brookhaven Parks Dept and the Smith Point Peninsula Homeowners. Additional improvements to landscaping and the BBQ area are expected for the 2009 season.
Mr. Morris also discussed some of the improvements made to other local parks, such as the Forge River Marina and the Washington Ave. Ball Fields, the planned improvements for Osprey Park and of course the construction of a new park at Bayview Avenue.
We are looking forward to another year of working closely with Mr. Morris on keeping Shirley Beach the family-friendly oasis we have come to know it as. Be sure to stop down and visit it this summer.
