County pools open to 8 p.m. through Sunday


To help Nassau County residents beat the heat during the current heat wave, pools at North Woodmere, Cantiague, Wantagh and Christopher Morley parks, and Nickerson Beach will be open until 8 p.m. through July 21, County Executive Ed Mangano said.

“Nassau County’s outdoor pools provide residents with a terrific place to exercise, have fun and beat the heat, and with the temperatures climbing to particularly oppressive levels we’re going to provide two extra hours of relief,” Mangano said.

At Cantiague in Hicksville (516-571-7056), North Woodmere (516-571-7800) and Wantagh (516-571-7460) parks, the County provides “water theme” facilities that incorporate Olympic-size swimming pools, diving pools, “kiddie” pools, interactive water-play areas and water slides.

The pool at Wantagh Park, which features an eye-catching waterfront location. The large swimming complex at Christopher Morley Park (516-571-8113) in Roslyn-North Hills includes an Olympic-size pool, diving tank with boards, and a kiddies pool, framed by a beautiful wooded preserve.
