  • Great oral for any visitor. However, they need to adjust the hours of operation. Not very convenient for a tourist
  • The open time window is too narrow for summer visitors. I mean it can open earlier in the morning, though there are too many mosquitos in the evening.
  • Such a beautiful and peaceful place for a walk
  • This park is magnificent. It is one of my favorite places on Long Island for running and hiking; however, I can only give it four stars because of the damned ticks!! As a LI State Park addict, visiting at least one park per day, this park, hands down, has the most significant tick population. The only safe time to visit is in the dead of winter. Unfortunately, the spring is when it is best. The daffodils at the fish hatchery are amazing, the birding is outstanding, and the bountiful trees and overall experience are intoxicating. So, if you want to experience this beauty, please take extreme tick precautions. Wear light clothing so you can spot the ticks. (You can wear Deet, but it really doesn't help). Frequently have someone check you. And, get a very sticky roller and roll yourself when you're done. Oh, and then check yourself again, and again.
  • Are you kidding me, the park is closed Mon and Tue and only open until 4pm the days it is open. There are also a surprising lack of walking trails for the amount of space they have. This is the largest park on LI, what a waist! Truly pathetic. They have to do a better job with this park by extending the hours from dawn to dusk and opening it 7 days weekly as well as making more narrow walking trails in the forested areas.
