Town to Host Doggie Pool Party

Second annual end of summer celebration to be held at Clinton G. Martin Pool

North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board announced that the Town will be hosting the second Doggie Pool Party at Clinton G. Martin Park on Tuesday, September 6 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“With the end of summer near, we are preparing to drain and clean our pools. What better time to allow dogs in the pool,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “After last year’s extremely successful Doggie Pool Party, we are looking forward to once again offering an opportunity to allow our residents to bring their dogs to our pool for a swim.”

“We are excited that our canine family members will again get to enjoy our pool. We also hope that this event will raise awareness to the fact that all dogs must be properly licensed and vaccinated and encourage more of our residents to license their dogs in North Hempstead,” said Town Clerk Wayne Wink.

The event is part of the Town’s effort to be more dog friendly. The Town now allows dogs on leashes at North Hempstead Beach Park, the Hempstead Harbor Trail, Mary Jane Davies Green and Michael J. Tully Park.

The event is free and pre-registration is required.  All attendees must be residents of the New Hyde Park special park district, but do not have to be a member of the pool to take advantage of the event. Dogs also must have with a valid and up-to-date dog license. For more information, please call 311 or 516-869-6311.

Serving over 222,000 people, the Town of North Hempstead’s governing body is headed by the Town Supervisor, Judi Bosworth and six Town Board members: Viviana L. Russell, Peter J. Zuckerman, Angelo P. Ferrara, Anna M. Kaplan, Lee R. Seeman and Dina M. De Giorgio. The Town Clerk is Wayne Wink and the Receiver of Taxes is Charles Berman.
