Memorial spray park opening soon in Huntington

July 10, 2018 by  

Family, friends, local officials and members of the SCPD and NYPD will honor the memory of Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo with the opening of a spray park in Huntington.

The park, named the Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo Memorial Spray Park, is located in Elwood Park, and is the first spray park to be built in Huntington. Lisa Tuozzolo, along with her sons and Christopher Pizzo, a lieutenant with the New York Police Department, have added their input to the design and planning of the park from the very beginning of the process. Also involved were Chad A. Lupinacci, the town supervisor, as well as members of his staff, and the Huntington Civil Engineering Department. Lisa Tuozzolo, and her sons Joseph and Austin, left their handprints in the park’s sidewalk earlier this year.

The spray park comprises 4,900 square feet, 2,500 of which have room for active play, with push-button technology that uses water efficiently. The runoff from the spray pad will be reused to irrigate fields at Elwood Park.

The grand opening is scheduled for 1.00 pm tomorrow, July 11, and attendees will have an opportunity to win a range of prizes offered by the Elwood Public Library.

Organizers of events like this can work use flyer printing to create programs for attendees, and highlight the meaning behind the event.
