Of all comments good and bad about Halls Pond Park in West Hempstead, the best one was by Mikey (above). You obviously have fond memories of this childhood playland, Mikey, and it's a wonderful thing. Others who choose to denigrate the pond because it is now dirty and disheveled are wastrels, bent on condemning a now-fragile area. Whether it is maintained by Nassau kCounty or the Townof Hempstead, the park coujld be improved and saved. Nice to have such ardor for an environmental landmark. We have a similar case in Sea Cliff, our beloved Scudders Pond. It is an iceskating center, too, Mikey, and yes full of girls to meet. Good luck, West Hempstead, you have a treasure there. Keep it going.does anyone remember when there was a large fish kill at the pond where like 1000's came to the surface one day and evening (we were hooking them with our treble hooks) and the next day they were all floating covering a lot of the surface of the pond. This had to be in the 60's sometime. Always wondered what caused it. I remember the pond was a great place to ice skate in winter...a lot of girls there...

This was a beautiful place when I was growing up. We called it sailboat pond. We made little sailboats and put them in one end of the pond and let the wind carry them around until they would find the edge of the pond. And do it all over again. We were 5 & 6 years old at the time.

obviously we all need to come together and make it a better park :)
