New Sign Installed at Mill Pond

A new sign has been installed at Mill Pond Park in Bellmore, according to South Bellmore Civic Association President Allison Frankel.

"The Mill Pond sign was broken for years, probably from Irene," Frankel said. "For the past few months I made a few calls to the County requesting it get fixed."

Frankel also saw Carnell Foskey from the Nassau County Department of Parks at a Merrick Civic meeting and passed him a note along with images of the broken sign.  After some follow-up calls were made, the county replaced the sign.

"This sign has extra significance because it mentions Adam Rand and the path that's been dedicated to him," she added. "I was beaming as I drove by the other day and noticed the new sign!"

This sign replacement means so much to my family as Adam Rand was our beloved son and brother and my house is on the pond so we see it every day. Thank you so much as it makes us so proud. Sincerely, Mary Ann Rand

That's great to hear Mary! It was unacceptable that it went into disrepair for so long. We might ask a local landscaper to plant something by the sign in the spring. Similar to Camman Pond in Merrick. It's great hearing from you... Ali

Always good to be reminded of the name of the County Executive.

When will legislation be passed that forbids the hacks from putting their names on our signs at our facilities?

The only reason Mill Pond got fixed a few years ago was through the hard work and efforts of Leg. Dave Denenberg and the local folks regardless who the County Exevutive or Parks Commissioners were or are. Mangano and Foskey had nothing to do with it and it is a travesty that their names are even remotely associated with the Pond.
