Someone recently told me about Wantagh Park and its large playground. Even though I have lived in Nassau County for more than forty years, I have never been there. Today was the day! The playground is located in a beautiful 111 acre, waterfront park. The large parking lot closest to the playground has two handicapped spaces. Brick and concrete walkways lead to the play areas. Most of it is fenced, with different apparatus for kids of all ages. Sand is under most of the equipment, making for a forgiving surface. There are three swing areas, none of which have handicapped swings. Many benches allow one to watch his/her charges easily. A large picnic area is here as well. All of the kids I saw seemed to be having a great time – and why not, with all of the choices available.
Multi-stall restrooms with a large, handiapped stall and baby-changing station are located in a building close by (less than 1/10 of a mile).
If you are interested, across the road from the playground is the park’s Mini Golf Course. A bit father down the road, to the right, is a Butterfly Garden.
