As my husband and I took a stroll through Roosevelt Park on what may have been the last lovely day of autumn, I was reminded of all the wonderful times I have spent here. When our kids were little, they bathed in the calm waters of Oyster Bay Harbor, played in the playground, took advantage of the tennis courts, and even launched a boat from one of the ramps. Now we spend time jogging, walking, and just relaxing with a cup of coffee and looking at a fabulous view that rivals any place in the world. Every season affords a different, spectacular vista.
Located at the north end of the village of Oyster Bay, this is a beautiful, serene place. If you are a town resident you can get a parking sticker for the season. If not, you can pay a daily rate (check the website or call), or just go out of season.
Parking is easy. There is a large, paved parking area with handicapped spaces.
Take a stroll along the walkway, past the beach and down to the marina. The walkway, recently redone, is made of smooth pavers. Many benches, some under the trees, beckon you to sit and relax. Picnic tables and a gazebo are also available.
In season, a refreshment stand has the usual offerings. The public bathrooms have handicapped accessible stalls, although one cannot count on them being open out of season.
A large children’s play area, designed for ages 5–12, is near the refreshment stand. The area has rubberized terrain with swings, slides, and climbing apparatus. There are also benches from which one can easily watch the little ones.
We think we are prejudiced but we love this park. We hope that you will too!
As always, we at Destination Accessible urge you to check a venue’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
