Town of New Windsor opens pickleball courts at San Giacomo Park Councilman Stephen A. Bedetti and Recreation Director Matt Veronesi celebrated the opening of the Town of New Windsor pickleball courts at San Giacomo Park, by a playing game with town residents Donald McCrossen, a Pickleball instructor and Ambassador to the sport and Hal Koch, an avid tennis player. “Getting these pickleball courts done for our residents has been on the top of my list for over two years.” stated Councilman Bedetti. “I’d like to thank our Town Board Members and Recreation Director Matt Veronesi for their support and most importantly our residents for voicing their opinion on the need for them. I look forward to seeing them get plenty of use!” There are four pickleball courts available for residents use at San Giacomo Park, 402 Union Avenue. The park is located across from Heritage Junior High School. Update from Supervisor Meyers: NWPD Bike Patrol, Dog Park & New K9 Officer From Supervisor Meyers: We are introducing a few new additions for New Windsor that have been in planning stages for a couple of months. Beginning tomorrow, July 6, a police bicycle patrol will begin in our housing developments. We have had six of our officers in training for this detail. I think it is important for our officers to interact with our residents on a regular basis. My belief is that this type of patrol will be helpful in accomplishing that goal. The officers assigned to this detail are anxious to get started. There is a schedule of the dates and locations of these patrols and all our housing developments are included. Lieutenant Fred Fayo will provide oversight of this unit. The bikes will be rack mounted on a marked police vehicle and the officer will determine when and how long to patrol on the bike. I have heard repeatedly from our residents that they do not know any of the police officers, and I hope that this will create positive interaction for our residents with our officers. I have been discussing a town dog park for New Windsor for a number of weeks and the park is now a reality. The park is located at our San G Park on Union Ave across from Heritage school. There are two sections for different size dogs and both have shade structures and water bowl filling stations. The gate key required for use of the dog park will be available at the town clerk’s office starting on Thursday, July 8. In addition, as of this past Friday, we have a new K-9 unit assigned to our police patrol unit. Officer Joe Bell and his partner Duke graduated after months of training and will now be on patrol helping to keep New Windsor a safe place for all of us. New Windsor Parks Closed Until Further Notice Effective at 8am on Monday, March 30th, all New Windsor Parks will be closed to the public until further notice. Basketball rims have been removed and tennis courts have been locked. Supervisor Meyers has been forced to take this further action based on large groups of people not observing the social distancing guidelines set by New York State at our parks. New Windsor Police and Recreation Staff will monitor parks to enforce this closure. Comments are closed.
