As the days get warmer, the spray park buzzes with happy children of all ages enjoying the spray park. And since we always encouraged our residents to be active and healthy, we have this year decided to permanently pave our walking trail around the Greece Town Hall Campus. Two years ago we thought we would give an outdoor walking trail at the Town Hall Campus a try, and it has grown in popularity. The total path brings you around the pickleball courts, the spray park, the playground, and our retention pond. The total path marked in 1/8 mile increments is ½ mile long. The paving will be done just in time for our July 4th Super Heroes Run and will be enjoyed by thousands of residents who visit and walk their way around the Town Hall Campus. Additionally, to help folks navigate all of the great features, we have we have installed directional signs on the walking path. 

When using the walking path, be sure to take advantage of our outdoor fitness stations! The exercise equipment available includes an Ab Toner, Lateral Pull Down, Chest Press, Double Leg Press, and Rower. These pieces are designed for all fitness levels.

“According to the calendar it’s the first day of Summer, but the Town of Greece has already had many of our summer enhancements under way” said Supervisor Reilich.  “The Town Board and I would like to invite Greece residents to take advantage of all the amenities that we have to offer not only at our wonderful parks and trails, but also right here at Town Hall Campus”.

The apartments are located at 1230 Long Pond Road, adjacent to Long Pond Senior Housing.

Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board members Josh Jensen and Bill Murphy, Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon, Greece Administrative Judge David Michael Barry, Greece American Legion Post #468 Commander George Dadson, Jr., the Color Guard, and other members of Legion Post #468 for a special Flag Day Dedication Ceremony. The ceremony was held at Veteran’s Memorial Park (formally Badgerow Park North), which was renamed earlier this year in honor of the great military men and women who serve our country.

Legion Post #468 Commander George Dadson, Jr. was presented with a plaque from Supervisor Reilich which commemorated the 2018 Flag Day Dedication Ceremony. The Color Guard was presented with the American Flag and ceremoniously raised the flag up the flag pole at the park. A plaque was placed at the base of the flag pole, which reads: Dedicated To Our Great Veterans.

“Today was truly a special day as we held a dedication ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park and raised the American Flag” said Supervisor Reilich. “What better day to hold this special ceremony than on Flag Day. People across the United States celebrate Flag Day on June 14th each year to honor the United States flag and to commemorate the flag’s adoption. We are honored to dedicate this flag at Veteran’s Memorial Park to the brave men and women of our military”.

Veteran’s Memorial Park connects to Badgerow Park South on Latta Road by an extensive trail system. The 33 acre park contains tennis and basketball courts, a softball field, a multi-purpose field, a toddler playground, and an open shelter for parties. The numerous amenities make this a widely-used park in the Town of Greece. Veteran’s Memorial Park is located at 4614 Dewey Avenue.

This morning, Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Josh Jensen and Bill Murphy and Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon for a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of Fresco Italian Kitchen in Greece. The new restaurant is located at 441 Stone Road.  

Fresco Italian Kitchen is owned and operated by Alexander Giardino who chose to open the restaurant to provide the Greece community with home style Italian food. Al decided to open the restaurant in the Stone Road section of Greece because he spent a lot of time growing up in that area and wanted to give back to that community. Fresco Italian Kitchen is a family-owned business and Al works very closely with many of his family members during the day-to-day operations of the restaurant. For more information and to check out the menu, visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FrescoItalianKitchen/.

“I was honored to host a ribbon cutting ceremony for Fresco Italian Kitchen” said Supervisor Reilich. “We work every day to ensure that the Town of Greece is a business-friendly place, and I am always happy to welcome new businesses to the area. I wish Owner and operator Alexander Giardino and his family great success! Greece residents are looking forward to enjoying home style Italian food from your restaurant!”
