Glovers Lane Park Proposal Released

What do you think of the plan? Comment below.

A new design for Glover's Lane Park, which sits behind the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce office, was unveiled on Wednesday night during the Westhampton Beach's monthly work session.

The plan, according to Trustee Patricia DiBendetto, who is the liason to the village's beautification committee, calls for a simple design of smooth walking paths and tables.

"It is a bit of a different concept from before," said DiBendetto, who said that previous plans called for a bandstand.

That plan was developed by a pro-bono architect at the request of former Trustee Sue Farrell, who said at the time that the village wanted to fulfill multiple requests for new music venue.

DiBendetto said the new plan for the park, which was purchased in 2009, was rendered by Spaces Landscape Architecture of Quogue and can be brought to fruition before the summer season starts.

"It will be nice to give back to the community and for visiting folks and residents to hang out," said DiBendetto.

The next step is to price out the project. DiBendetto said she believes the largest expense will be the excavation of the property, which has a five-foot elevation change from the street to the back of the lot.

Funding for the project would come out of the parks department fund.

Now if only the village would allow a decent grocery store where we could purchase items to picnic there.
