Part of Huntington Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci’s plan to revitalize Huntington Station, includes a new water spray park at Manor Field Park. After approving $750,000 in funding and an application to apply for up to $189,000 in New York State and Municipal Facilities Capital Program grants, the Town demolished the old park and is preparing to build a brand new one, which includes the water spray area.

 

The Town has already replaced the synthetic turf field at the park, under which the previous septic system leaching pools for both the comfort station and community building were located. The sanitary system was replaced to handle the additional septic and water usage the spray park would bring. The old playground was demolished this summer - earlier than originally planned due to unsafe equipment.

“The Manor Field Spray Park along with the new amenities we have coming soon are exciting steps in our plan to revitalize Huntington Station,” said Supervisor Lupinacci. 

 

Construction will start in the coming weeks and will take approximately two months to complete. The park is planned to officially open in Spring 2022.

This will be the second spray park to be located in the Town of Huntington.

 

“In the spring of 2022, the children of Huntington Station will have this first-class spray park in their backyard, along with a brand-new playground and new turf field that athletes of all ages can enjoy,” said Deputy Supervisor Councilman Ed Smyth.
