Help us Plan the Future of John Maccarone Memorial Stadium and Park!

John Maccarone Memorial (City) Stadium and Park on the south-side of Glen Cove Creek has been an important part of Glen Cove’s recreational activities for many years.  Many individuals and families have participated in various events or have watched one of many hosted sporting events such as baseball, soccer, lacrosse and football.

There is an exciting opportunity to improve the existing site as well as the site of the former incinerator, allowing for more activities and, at the same time, making it easier for people to park around the grounds. Thanks to a grant provided by the New York State Department of State, two City of Glen Cove agencies – the Department of Parks and Recreation and the Community Development Agency – are leading this planning effort, which will result in engineering plans that will go out for construction.

To move this initiative forward, we need the input of Glen Cove residents to help us with this important project. Our team members have already been out this summer at Glen Cove downtown public events and have spoken with over 150 people about the project. Your ideas and opinions are important and will be a key part of the success of this project.  In fact, there are two more ways you can share your ideas:

  • Attend our Open House discussion on the project, so please mark your calendars for Thursday, October 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Glen Cove City Hall, Main Chambers, 9 Glen Street.
  • RIGHT NOW, you have an opportunity to provide your input via an electronic survey by clicking on this link: surveymonkey.com/r/glencovecreek  and giving us 10 minutes of your time and all the good ideas that you have. The survey will ask you about current conditions, and ask you to share your thoughts on draft proposals for short-term (current sites) and potential long-term improvements. You’ll be able to download maps that show these proposals and tell us what you think. Also, feel free to share this survey with you friends and family members.

This survey was prepared with funds provided by the New York State Department of State under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
