Future of Planned Park Uncertain in South Setauket

Residents have protested the expansion of a small park on Strathmore Village Drive in South Setauket Park.

Clearing began in May on a wooded lot in South Setauket Park for the expansion of a small grassy area with a gazebo into a larger park with picnic tables and open space for playing. But as a few residents began to protest the park, saying it will attract vandalism and that parking would present a problem for the closest residents.

Now, according to a report published Thursday in The Village Times Herald, those who oppose the plan have begun a petition and placed anti-park signs on their lawns, and the park district's advisory board must consider the residents' complaints. According to the report, some have called for a ballot vote to determine whether the park should be built.
