I had read reviews stating how beautiful this place is and that people have seen various wildlife here. This was not my experience. I experienced a lot of mosquitos and gnats. The trails were okay, although not clearly labeled. The beach area was nice with the exception of the large barge ruining the beautiful view. I would not discourageanyone from... More

Two castles from the Roaring 20's and lots of hiking trails to explore. The view is great and they film ROYAL PAINS here.

The preserve is a large area of beautiful property on Long Island sound. Great for day trips with the kids and events in the renovated Guggenheim estate. Terrific village day every fall.

so much nature! there were turtles sunning on logs, squirrels scurrying along branches, and trees and grass everywhere! there are so miles of trails along small woody areas and Long Island Sound, but the downside- no bikes are allowed. but to compensate, there was an ice cream truck, so my daughter got a frozen fruit popsicle and was slurping on...

See the mansions of the "ultra-rich and famous" and walk the grounds. Miles of trails and beautiful views of LI Sound; Great lawns, woods, beaches and pounds. A special place right here in Nassau county. Plenty of wildlife to see. It's a great way to spend an afternoon.

This is a little gem of a place. You can take trails through untouched woodlands, see turtles sunning themselves in the ponds, and even walk down to the waters of Long Island Sound and go swimming or sunning. A wonderful way to spend the day!

2 old mansions are on the Sands Point Preserve. Like out of the Great Gatsby. Excellent way to have a tour and see how the 1% from that era lived. Outside there are walking trails that go through great treed areas and some lead down to the salt water beach. When it snows you can do cross country here. Great... More

This place is a wonderful gem, right in our backyard. Walking paths, wonderful views of the Sound and beach access. Easy enough walks for little kids, elderly. Well maintained relative to today's austerity. Friendly and few staff. Perfect fall afternoon diversion. Don't expect to hike for ours, the paths are pretty quickly covered by experienced hikers. This is more for... More
