  • Avalon park is the perfect place to take a date, your family, your friends and even your dog! This park is absolutely gorgeous and is kept in spectacular condition. There are two kind of separate places to walk around, the first area is located right next to the mill pond in the area and is normally more crowded. It has a well kept walkway and a bridge as well as stone steps that lead up to a small pond and an amazing labyrinth. I have visited this park so many times I cannot remember and every time I come to this park, I genuinely enjoy myself and the company I am with. I frequently take my dog with me as well, she loves to walk with me here and meet other dogs. Now, the second area of Avalon is more like a nature walk through fields. The path leads you through trails in the woods then into open fields that is surrounded by beautiful wild flowers. The newest site to this park is the huge mirror ball that is actually a pathway to the heavens. You can send letters to the heavens by writing them on a postcard, which is actually provided, and inserting these postcards into the huge ball. I think this idea is beautiful and poetic and was a great add to the paradise that Avalon park is. Overall, I highly recommend visiting this park with anyone that you want to share a magnificent experience, or perhaps even travel by yourself to escape from the hectic world.
  • This is one of those little hidden Jem's of Long island. I have been going to this park for 6 years now and even in the winter it is enjoyable. The walkways are cleaned and salted when it snows .Only downfall are no bathrooms. Great hiking trails ,and some cool art sculptures. When you done go up the road to Harmony Vineyards and have a glass of wine. The town is really nice lots of good restaurants. there's also a Carriage House Museum right down the road .This is definitely worth the trip.
  • This place will always be cherished. From my teenage years all the way to present. A place that cannot be missed.
  • Such a beautiful place. Great for photography. The laberynth is beautiful. Great when it is not crowded.
  • It's an awesome park in the warmer months where all life isn't dead. It's a great size and perfect for walking your dog. It is a little crowded during weekend mornings with young kids and families walking pets so I would go a week day where it feels more zen.
