Revenue Generating Sledding Slope. The design will include the following: rentals, concessions, locker rentals, handicap access with elevators. Ice/Snowmaking equipment when the season is dry. This design can be developed at all Nassau County Parks. Let's make Long Island the Winter Recreational Region. This facility can be opened 6-8 months to generate revenue encouraging exercise for all ages and disabilities.

This is a great idea! The

This is a great idea! I'd include tubing too. The more activities there are for all residents the better off we are as a community. AMH

I agree!

There's plenty of vacant warehouses and industrial space in LI. You should definitely do it! Add a nice rink and you will have year round attraction. Think of all the bday parties kids will have.

We need to Stand Up, Bind Together and Make Nassau Great Again.
