I live within walking distance of the preserve and am a longtime visitor. But I have been boycotting this beautiful place since the Friends of Sands Point Preserve (now the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy) took over the exclusive management of this Nassau County-owned in 2008 and jacked up the prices in a way that is de facto discrimination against the...

Make sure to buy tickets to mansions in the guest house when you pay for parking, otherwise you would have to go back. Parking i think is $5, tours are 10$. Bus will pick you up to go to Guggenheim summer house, which is still owned privately by the family. The place is very interesting, specially for new yorkers. Make... More

Visited June 05, 2016 on a Thursday. It was a beautiful sunny day but not hot, about 70s. The views here were beautiful. You can see the Long Island Sound, Westchester and Connecticut. The trails were easy but you have to wear good hiking shoes for one or two paths. Walked down to the beach which was accessed by a... More

The Preserve is very nicely kept. The walking trails are easy to navigate. I would suggest that they update their map as some trails were not listed. Old building look beautiful.

Sands Point Preserve is a great place to go and just walk around. The buildings are architecturally beautiful, many movies and TV shows have been filmed here. The grounds offer wooded trails and walks along the sound. The gardens are well maintained and offer a variety of plants, trees and flowers. Many places to sit and just take in the... More
