Curran Announces “Mail Your Letters To Santa” Program At Nassau County Parks

MINEOLA, NY--Nassau County Executive Laura Curran today announced that the children of Nassau County will once again be able to send their holiday lists directly to Old St. Nick at the North Pole via a special network of Santa’s Mailboxes at Nassau County Parks, beginning Wednesday, November 21st through Friday, December 14th.

All children who send letters to Santa will receive a reply in the form of a “Santa-Gram” from the North Pole, with Santa’s elves at the Parks Department pitching in to send cheery but noncommittal letters in response to children’s letters. To assure a reply, each letter must contain the child’s name and address, written legibly. There is no postage necessary for the Santa letters. The “Santa-Grams” will be sent before the holiday.

Colorful red and green mailboxes will be accessible from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily at the administration buildings of the following parks:

  • Cantiague Park in Hicksville, (571-7056)
  • Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills, (571-8113)
  • Grant Park in Hewlett, (571-7821)
  • Rev. Arthur Mackey, Sr. Park in Roosevelt, (571-8692)
  • Wantagh Park in Wantagh, (571-7460)
  • Eisenhower Park’s Special Activities Building at Parking Field No. 8, (572-0348)
  • Nassau Aquatic Center at Parking Field No. 1A, (572-0501)
  • Old Bethpage Village Restoration in Old Bethpage (516-572-8409)

The letters can also be dropped off at the Parks Department’s Administration Building in Eisenhower Park, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., (572-0396).

For more information about Santa’s mailboxes, please call (516) 572-0200 weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. or visit Park’s Department website at:
