Re-Opening of Lou Lodati Park Delayed a Week

June 12, 2013 Staff Report

The re-opening of Lou Lodati Park has been rescheduled for June 22nd.

The delay is the result of inclement weather over the past week. According to the Parks Department, the contractor has struggled to paint the surface of the park due to rain.

The contractor needs several straight days of dry, warm weather.

Rick Duro, the head of the Sunnyside United Dog Society, was unfazed by the delay: “We’ve waited over a decade, no biggie!”

The park had been scheduled to re-open on June 15.

It’s been so quiet on here lately, let’s not stir it all up again!

Let’s just agree that we disagree and leave it @ that:)

I agree w/ PG, adding some benches along the fences near the girls softball diamond would be nice. Also, some signage explaining that the green spaces are off limits to man and beast alike.

Reuben, maybe you can help us work with these folks to keep the park clean? You can be a SUDS liaison:)




They should put in bleachers or some old school benches by the baseball field and by the basketball courts


As long as the delay is not up for next year, I’m sure we can wait until Saturday, June 22, 2013 for the re-opening of Lou Lodati Park. After all, the weather might improve next weekend for a change.

There’s more rain in the forecast for the next few days. The delay will be more than a week I think.
