“Different kind of Park”

Heckscher State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed July 16, 2017

.Most of the popular attractions are gone. What is left are open fields and woods. There is an excellent dog walking trail. The Greenbelt trail starts in a quiet beach area filled with sea birds. There are also weekly cricket matches and occasional track events. The best part is a bike / walk trail that surrounds an open sea grass area. I recommend it as a year round park.

They have a nice picnic area where the kids have an updated play area...the part near the beach is a haven. We have our family reunion picnic here for the past 20 years. We play music, BBQ and have so much fun chillin together with family. Nice park for your entire family!

Have been here many times since I was a kid. From school field days, to picnics, to walks along the beach. It's clean, it's quiet and it's Long Island. Took the bridal party to the beach for pictures on 1-1-17. It was a beautiful day and the photos came out great. Great treasure on Long Islands south shore.

I'm biased, I know, but this was my childhood backyard. Growing up in the neighborhood, we always rode our bikes into the park, drove in as a family, and even learned to drive there -- it had everything we needed to learn how to drive without too much traffic to be intimidated by. "Let's go to Heckscher for coffee" was our favorite line as kids; when mom or dad said it to the other it meant playground for us! Bring your kids, bring your bikes, bring your bug spray (sometimes the mosquitoes can be annoying).
