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.
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.
