Do you enjoy walking, strolling, jogging or running, then take advantage of Sunken Meadow State Park boardwalk! It is 1 1/2 miles of boardwalk end to end with bathrooms located at two spots.. the main entrance area (also has showers) and the furthest east end). There is also a seasonal food concession located at the main entrance, typical Beach fare, typical over priced food and drink but at least the workers have always been pleasant. The concession at the east end always seems to be closed???
The boardwalk gets the cool ocean (well actually its the LI Sound) breezes and the view is just beautiful. I enjoy the boardwalk all year round and opt to purchase a yearly state pass (I think it was about 65.) There are picnic areas, golfing, a huge updated playground area, hiking trails (greenbelt), a "wedding" pavillion on the west end, a huge jetty that many fish from. You'll see those bathing, strolling, exercising, playing, relaxing, surfcasting, fishing, picnicking, playing volleyball, practicing their parkour (crazy, lol), reading and more. A lovely place for a short or long visit, Enjoy!
