Long and Lean Exercise Class
Long and Lean exercise classes will resume in March. Two changes have been implemented this year. First, a modest program fee will be charged to all participants. The fee for residents will be $25, and non-residents will be charged $35. The fees collected will help to offset the cost to run the program, including trainer, administrative, and facility expenses. Second, classes will now be held two days a week, Monday and Thursday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30 am. The program runs from March 5th through April 5th. And, depending upon enrollment numbers, classes will be held in either the lower level or on the 2nd floor of Village Hall in the William Gill Theatre.
Long and Lean exercise involves gentle stretching, Pilates exercise, and light weights. Participants should bring an exercise mat, towel, and a water bottle.
Registration takes place before class begins on March 5th, so please come 10 minutes earlier that morning. The program fee can be paid by check, cash, or credit card. These classes have become very popular. We hope you are able to participate in the fun and the fitness.

Children’s Summer Recreation Program
The Village Parks and Recreation Commission is pleased to offer our extremely popular Children’s Summer Recreation Program to be held at Memorial Park. Children between the ages of 6 through 12 will be treated to hours of fun and enjoyment. The large shelter at Memorial Park provides a sun-free setting for games and entertainment. Improvements were completed last year at Memorial Park, including reconstruction and resurfacing of the tennis and basketball courts and the walking path around the perimeter of the Park and the Field House.
This Program will be held Monday through Thursday for five weeks. Since Tuesday, July 4th is a federal holiday, the Program will begin on Monday, July 9th and will continue through Thursday, August 9th.
Children will be divided into two age specific sessions. Children ages 6 – 8 will attend the morning session from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Youth between the ages of 9 – 12 will attend the afternoon session from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM. All program activities will be geared to the appropriate age groups.
The Park Field Office will be closed for lunch between the hours of 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM and there is no supervision available during that time period.
Registration will be held at Village Hall on Wednesday, June 21st from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Please bring a completed application for each child along with proof of Village residency (tax bill, utility bill, etc.) A 1 inch by 1.5 inch photo of your child is required. If you have more than one child to register, blank application forms can be obtained at the Village Clerk’s Office, on the Village website, or on registration day.
This program is provided free of charge to Village residents. Non-village residents in the New Hyde Park 11040 zip code are eligible, pending availability, with a $125 program registration fee per child.
The Village Parks and Recreation Commission is confident that this Program will provide your children with great summer activities and entertainment. We encourage you to have your children participate.
The Cultural Commission of the Village of New Hyde Park, aspires to meet the needs of the Village residents, by providing them with social, cultural and educational programming. Our purpose for providing this programming is to educate, entertain and foster a spirit of community within the village.
