Brookhaven Town opened a $1.5 million park over the weekend in Selden.
Veterans Park includes turf baseball fields and a multipurpose soccer, football and lacross field.
The park is the second of three phases totaling about $8 million for more ballfields in the area, town officials say.
The new park is at Boyle Road and Hemlock Street.
In the past few years, Brookhaven has spent an estimated $5 million on upgrades, renovations and construction of park facilities.
Councilman Kevin LaValle said he is “very excited” and that the park is much needed in the community.
