I realize that Sunken Meadow of King's Park is a State Park, but it is great during the off summer season. I have gown up in the area and do a lot of cross country running in the hills and walk with my honey on the boardwalk. As far as the summer activities it gets very crowded on the weekends and I stay away
I love walking along the water at Nissequogue River State Park. I know they closed it for a while earlier this year, but I believe it's been reopened for good (hope I'm not proven wrong come next summer!)
wow..really hard choices! I've been to most of the parks mentioned and each has a slightly different appeal depending on what you're after. Glad the Island has so many winners. For solitude, I walk in Caumsett, for the dunes, I hit Hither Hills, for crabbing, I head to the river.
The Adirondacks, perfect antidote for the 9 to 5
Yeppers! I agree with Adirondoc.....so many good choices and therefore hard to choose. I have stressful memories of Sunken Meadow state park as that is where a number of Cross-Country running meets were..............and "cardiac hill" definitely earns it's moniker! I done a lot of fishing and bike riding at Robert Moses....I even rode my bike across (mostly across) the Robert Moses Bridge once.......scariest thing I have done in years! I have dreams of being blown off such a bridge. Also, I liked being out at Cedar Point this past Summer (i.e., some camping/fishing/etc.).
I haven't gone since late last year but every time I do we picnic on the grounds of the big house and I say how much I would love to have some settup like that! Huge house with a back yard that slopes down to your own little inlet to the sound
I could put on some awsome fireworks displays for friends and family!
