We have been to Hecksher Park many times, in every season. Whether the middle of summer or winter, it is a beautiful, serene oasis, close to “downtown” Huntington. Known as the “Central Park of Huntington Village,” it is an easily accessible place for all. The paths are brick, paved, or wood. It’s easy to get to one of the wooden “docks” for a look at the turtles and fish in the pond. It’s easy to get to the playgrounds, and restrooms (near the playgrounds). It’s easy to reach one of the benches throughout to just sit and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of what is around you. No matter when we have been there, the park is always beautifully maintained. It seems to me that whoever is taking care of it, does it with love!


The only parking within the park itself is in the very small lot next to the Art Museum – there are two accessible spots. Parking can usually be found on the streets surrounding the park. There are five accessible spaces on Prime Ave.


The restrooms are multi-stall, with a large, accessible stall.


There are no food services in the park at any time, but you are only a short distance from a town with an abundance of food venues. Go to town before, or after, or better yet, pack a picnic and eat at the Park!


Hecksher Park is a true gem, not to be missed in any season!


As always, we at Destination:Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.huntingtonny.gov">www.huntingtonny.gov, or http://www.hecksher.org">www.hecksher.org, when planning a visit, to “know before you go,”
