Splash Pad The splash pad is now available with a 50 person maximum. Sanitization of high-touch areas will take place regularly and restrooms will be cleaned once daily. Participants are expected to social distance; no masks required. The drinking fountain/bottle filler will not be available.

Sat. – Available for rentals – 10a-12p and Open to public – 12-6p

Beaches The beaches are now available. There will be no lifeguards or attendants on duty and we will not be putting out the buoys – swim at your own risk. The shower tower at Linden’s Landing will not be available (due to EPA rules in accordance with the Village of Lindenhurst) and the restrooms will not be available at this time. There will be a 50 person maximum.
Safety is our number one concern for program participants and staff alike. We are following the CDC recommended guidelines for participating in recreation programs:
Face masks are mandatory for both participants (3 and older) and staff if they are unable to maintain 6ft social distance space during activities.
Participants are assigned their own equipment for each activity. The equipment is sanitized after each use and is not shared.
Participants/staff will not be permitted into the facility if exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. If while in our care, a participant exhibits symptoms, they will be quarantined to a designated room while they await pick up.
Hand sanitizer is available for use and encouraged regularly, as is proper handwashing.
All programs are assigned to a designated space(s) each day to mitigate any interaction with other groups and space-sharing. Any spaces shared throughout the day will be disinfected after use.
Our facility staff will deep clean regularly each day, focusing on high touch surfaces like doorknobs and handrails.
Automatic water bottle fill stations are now available for use, however the drinking fountain portion is still closed. Participants are encouraged to bring their own pre-filled water bottles to programs.
Extra hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout the facility for participant use.
All in-person programming will have no more than 50 participants; camp groups are limited to 15 participants per group.
