  • A little something for everyone - recommend walking the boardwalk and taking the trails to the walk bridges. Relaxing and quiet paths to casually stroll with nice scenic areas.

  • Great state park with fantastic views and outdoor opportunities. Must be amazing in the summer but is great in the winter on a calm sunny day.

  • I live on the south shore of Long Island & I'm used to the beaches there. Neither my wife nor I had ever been to Sunken Meadow Park. This is a really nice park & the view from the boardwalk/beach of the Long Island Sound is beautiful. Its a great beach for shell collecting/sea glass collecting. They have a really well maintained boardwalk with several bath houses for use with concession stands. There are picnic areas & so much more, some I haven't seen yet. Really nice park.
  • $8 parking is a little expensive. But everything else is good. Big clean bathrooms with lots of stalls. Softball fields were not maintained but they were there. The workers there seem nice. Great place for a picnic. Maybe carpool though
  • Love that there are so many different playgrounds for all ages. My son loves the sand pit. I do wish they would clean out the rocks and twigs in it more often but still nice to play in.
  • Beautiful place, but the main draw seems to be the boardwalk. Lots of people jogging along the boardwalk and plenty of space down at the beach. Boardwalk is a bit short though, probably ~0.5 mi. Haven't checked out the other trails.
  • This has to be one of the gems of Long Island. We love it. 30 years ago when our children were little weeds, we use to take them there two or three times a week. As the water is so calm, that's where they learned to swim. Can't say enough of the place.
