Hi.

Playgrounds, spraygrounds, and pools are a fun way to get Moms and kids out of the house and in the sunshine. Long Island has a multitude of fantastic playgrounds for residents and guests to enjoy.

There are two separate playground areas.

THE FRONT ONE is the playground my kids call the playground next to the preschool building. Consider it the sunnier one. There are two big and little kid area, separated by fencing. The little kid playground has a train theme with a rubber ground. The big kid side has swings, a sandbox, and three separate systems. The ground is also rubber but this side is slightly shadier. Restrooms are nearby. These systems are not new but are in good condition.

THE BACK ONE is the the other playground area is to the right side of the entrance (though you can't make a right at that point). It's shady enough that most times you don't need the sunscreen. This playground has a tire swing, slides, and a small rope web to climb. The ground is wood chips and there is no restroom. The tennis courts are close enough that if you have an older child or mother's helper with you, you could play tennis while the kids play. These systems appear older but in good condition.

GOOD FOR: Lots of different play sections to occupy the kids for a while. The back one feels like you are in the woods.

BEST FEATURE: Two playground options, depending on how sunny and hot the day is. Has a cute split-up tunnel that my kids call "the dinosaur bones".

YOU SHOULD KNOW: The Town of Oyster Bay has a summer camp located here so the playgrounds can be fully occupied during the week.

WORTH A LONG DRIVE: Yes, the park is pretty and there is a pool.
