A little bit of heaven in the middle of Massapequa. We take our dog here for a walk, ride our bikes on the path. Chipmunks, birds, rabbits, snakes, and other creatures live here. It's a beautiful place to escape.

A beautiful piece of paradise tucked away in our neighborhood. Peace of mind is just steps away off the busy roads. Babbling brook, tons of wonderful wildlife, pristine scenery and the true sounds of peace.
