Farmingville, NY -  On August 13, Councilman Kevin LaValle (right) was at the Selden Park Complex on Boyle Road to accept a check for $1,000,000 from New York State Senator John Flanagan (left). The money will fund phase 3 at the park, which includes the construction of two baseball fields and a playground.

Senator Flanagan said, “I am thrilled to assist the Town of Brookhaven with its ongoing construction of Selden Park Complex,” said Senator Flanagan. “Councilman LaValle has spearheaded the development of critical park resources for the Selden community including ballfields, playgrounds and walkable nature trails for all ages to enjoy. This state grant of $1 million will help the Town pursue its goal of providing all Brookhaven residents with state-of-the-art recreational facilities and it is a pleasure to join them in this effort.”

Councilman LaValle said, “I thank Senator Flanagan, who has always been helpful in my Council District, for coming through time after time to support the community. This park has been a real joint effort by the Town, State and the Suffolk County Legislature, with Legislator Tom Muratore leading the charge and when the work is complete, it will be one of the premier recreation facilities in all of Brookhaven Town. I thank everyone who had a hand in moving it along.”
