Original farm owned by Borella family.
The residents of Bethpage School District approved the sale of Borella Field (owned by the Bethpage School District), Plainview Road, on October 5, 2004. The sale will help offset taxes, provide additional capital improvement and preserve parkland. The Town of Oyster Bay agreed to purchase the property (10.27 acres) for a price of $4.25 million dollars. The land was purchased with SEA money (Save Environmental Assets). This is a dedicated fund that must be used for open space preservation. The park will accommodate the need for playing fields for Town of Oyster Bay sports leagues. There will be three baseball fields, two little league diamonds and one regulation diamond as well as one soccer field.
