Long Island is not known for its natural beauty, or for being relaxing, or really anything other than pumping our bars full of hair-gelly bros in black V-necks on weekends. This park flies in the face of that notion and solidly under the radar. It’s bucolic AF, has great trails for running/walking, and offers an easy escape from the pressures of city life and/or LIE driving.
