A Step Up at the Nesconset Gazebo

Nesconset Steps

Local Officials Join the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce in a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Celebrating a Custom Built Walkway Adjoining Nesconset Gazebo to Armory Park

Smithtown officials joined the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce in celebrating the completion of a new custom built walkway last Tuesday. On November 10th, members of the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce commended the town for the finished project which joins the Gazebo to the Nesconset Library and Charles P. Toner Park. The new walkway, which was built into a hill, improves access to the Gazebo, which is home to many concerts and events for the community. 

 

“It’s hard not to get nostalgic being here at a park named after a mentor of mine, Charles “Buster” Toner. This property, formerly a state armory, is now home to a library, a venue for concerts, a park with many features like the track, sports fields, trails, dog runs, playground and water park… and now it’s all connected. I want to acknowledge and thank Joe Arico and his extremely talented team at the Parks Department. Together as a team, this town board remains committed to constantly improving these amenities and look forward to adding new ones for the residents to enjoy.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim

 

The custom built walkway, railing, and brick work was integrated into a natural hill which leads from Charles P. Toner Park to the Nesconset Gazebo. Stone masonry work was custom designed and constructed by the Smithtown Department of Parks and Grounds, led by Joseph Arico. Recently completed renovations at Charles P. Toner Park include brand new LED lighting and new surfacing at the playground and spray park.

 

“We have our concert series in the park every summer here. And we’ve watched the patrons struggle to get up and down this hill for years to make use of the facilities and grounds. When I look at this beautiful stonework and design, it’s not just some linear staircase… it’s designed so that it’s not intrusive to walk on. We’ve mentioned the many projects that the town has completed here in Nesconset earlier and we believe this is just the latest in improvements that are proving to be advantageous for the hamlet and its residents.” - Frank Scagluso, Nesconset Chamber of Commerce 

 

Other recently completed projects in Nesconset include: 

  • Gibbs Pond Park: State-of-the-art LED sports lighting, turf resurfacing, reconditioning the Tennis & Basketball Courts and new playground areas at Gibbs Pond Park
  • New LED pedestrian crosswalks installed from Gibbs Pond Road to Nicolls Road and from the park entrance crossing to Gibbs Pond 
  • New Firematic Training Facility: Improvements to the Firematic Campus, Concrete Slab for training drills, and new water main construction
  • New sidewalks along Terry Road, Gibbs Pond Road & Browns Road, Nicolls Road (west side) & Smithtown Blvd 
  • Sidewalk Reconstruction: The Highway Department repaired 3,900 linear square feet of sidewalk in the Nesconset area 
  • Roads Paved: Nicolls Road, Browns Road, Gibbs Pond Road, Cedar Avenue, Roseanne Court and Glen Hill Court
