Roberto Clemente Park Temporarily Closed to the Public

Islip, NY – Town of Islip officials have announced that Roberto Clemente Park will be temporarily closed to the public at the suggestion of State and County authorities to allow them to conduct a full investigation into alleged misuse of the public park by a private entity. Town officials and law enforcement agencies received an anonymous complaint that alleges a private contractor may have spread illegal fill during the construction of donated athletic fields on Town-owned parkland. The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office has started investigating the extent of any infractions as well as the NYS DEC, who weeks ago, began working with Town officials to investigate the anonymous complaint.

“As a former prosecutor, and as a parent, I am deeply disturbed and frustrated that impropriety is alleged to have taken place at a community park where our children play. The safety of our residents and compliance for safe recreation is a responsibility we uphold,” said Councilman Anthony Senft, Jr. “The Town is grateful for the involvement of both the Suffolk County District Attorney and the NYS DEC, and we are committed to cooperating with them to reach a determination of any improper actions taken by a private company.”
