Reservations can only be made by calling the pool gate at 516-306-4411
between the hours of 12 noon and 4 pm the day before your desired visit.
Confirmation of your reservation, if one is available, will be by email from
LSPOOLRESERVATIONS@gmail.com by 7pm that day. Your reservation is not final
until you receive the confirmation email. Please bring a copy of the
confirmation with you. There will be no exceptions to the reservation rules.
The decisions of our Park Directors will be final.
The pool has been open since July 10th and so far, it has been a success. We thank the pool directors, pool staff, Public Works, Board of Trustees, the Park Commission, Park Commission Secretary, and the Village Office for all of their hard work in getting it all together so quickly during the pandemic. We also thank all of the residents for their cooperation, patience and understanding.
We would like to address a few items:
1. POOL HOURS: Starting Tuesday, July 28th, we have extended the pool hours for the second session on Tuesdays and Thursdays for one hour.
The second session will be from 2:30 PM -7 PM on those 2 days.
2. RESERVATIONS: Please be reminded that advance reservations must be made the day before between 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Reservations are to be made by phone at 516-306-4411 which is the dedicated line used for this purpose.
3. CANCELLATION OF RESERVATIONS: Anybody who makes a reservation and cannot attend MUST email VLSpoolreservation@gmail.com or call the pool desk 516-482-4764 to cancel the reservation.
This is very important because you are taking a reservation away from one of your neighbors.
Anyone who fails to cancel a reservation and does not show up on more than three occasions will be prohibited from making any further advance reservations.
4. SAME DAY RESERVATIONS: Same day reservations will now be permitted, subject to availability.
Pool members may call the pool desk on the same day. Once again, the pool desk number is 516-482-4764.
5. RESERVATIONS TO USE THE POOL FOR THE TUESDAY SESSIONS: Remember, that the pool is closed on Mondays. We ask that residents please make their reservations for the Tuesday Sessions on the Sunday before from 12 PM - 4 PM.
6. LAP LANES: Effective immediately, only one person at a time will be permitted to use the lap lanes. Family members will be permitted to share a lap lane. This is for the safety of the residents during the pandemic.
THE TENNIS COURTS WILL BE LOCKED.
If you wish to use one of the courts please check in with the tennis attendant stationed at the field or at the pool gate. You will be asked to present a validated park I.D. card and sign-in. All guests and daily members must pay the applicable fees. The attendant will then unlock the court for you. Your I.D. card will be returned when you are finished your playing time.
After pool hours, if a court is locked, keys may be obtained at the police station upon presentation of a park I.D.
We hope that by following these tennis court access procedures everyone can enjoy easy and safe use of our tennis courts.
Have a wonderful season!
The Park Commission meetings are scheduled for the
fourth Wednesday of each month
at 7:30 PM in the Board Room
except as noted.
We have a new running track! With a grant that the Village received from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, under the supervision of Trustee Steve Lam, a new running track was approved and constructed. The track is environmentally friendly and is about .22 of a mile.
To keep up with
all the park events please go to the “Lake Success Park” Facebook Page and
Instagram (lakesuccesspark). These are community pages that have all our
park events or you can call the Village office for more information.
Some important information:
All persons using the pool or the park facilities (including the tennis courts), must exhibit their leisure pass. I am sure that everyone understands how important this is for the safety and convenience of all of our residents. The recreational staff has been instructed to only allow those with valid ID cards and their guests to use our facilities. Your ID card must be displayed when entering the pool or requesting a tennis court. Those using the ball fields and basketball court must display their ID card if requested by a Village employee.
The Village happily permits “qualified” children, grandchildren, parents and grandparents of seasonal members (i.e “family members” who are listed on your application) to have access to our pool facility on weekdays without requiring that a member accompany them. Family members are required to pay the applicable guest fee. “Family members” will be required to provide picture ID confirming their identity before being permitted access. Once again, this is very important for the safety and convenience of all of our residents.
Halloween Party at the Field
Residents of the Village of Lake Success have a great variety of superb sports and recreational facilities available to them. The Village park located off Vanderbilt Drive, contains a swimming pool, eleven tennis courts (eight clay and three all weather), a playground, two baseball fields, and basketball, handball and volleyball courts. During the summer there is a tennis pro available for lessons at an additional cost for residents of all ages.
These facilities are regulated and administrated by the Village Park Commission which acts under authority delegated by the Village Board of Trustees. The entire facility is supported by Village tax revenues and an annual membership fee. For a small additional fee to those availing themselves of its benefits, a summer day camp program for village children, ages three to six, is operated at the park.
The Lake Success Golf Course is another of our beautiful recreation areas which has been extensively used by our residents since it was organized in 1957. It is an 18 hole facility which has enhanced the value of our homes, and has made Lake Success one of the most desirable villages on the Great Neck peninsula. The Village Golf Course has rules and regulations and fees established and enforced by the Golf Commission, with the Board of Trustees approval.
