On April 22, 1998 the New York State Department of Environmental
Conservation signed a stewardship agreement with the Rocky Point Park
Revitalization Association for a 29 acre parcel in Rocky Point, N. Y.
This agreement is the first of its kind in New York State under their
new Adopt-A-Resource Program, where the state turns over management to
the association, while it retains ownership.
The revitalization group, comprising of members of the civic,
business, historical and property owners, received a consensus from the
community of what to have in the park. Funding was obtained from state
and local municipalities to makes these ideas a reality. Three years and
$15,000 later, the results are paying off. Rocky Point Park and Preserve
has a playground, an exercise trail, nature trail and pavilion with lighting
and picnic tables.
The latest addition is the beautiful bronze sculpture, Peace
Totem, donated by artist, Temima Gezari, a Rocky Point resident. Additional
landscaping and beautification is planned for open space development to
bring music to the park for summer evenings.
The park is open dawn to dusk seven days. The pavilion is
available for rental to groups that wish to have an occasion outdoors.
There are port-a-lavs available and free parking. For information about
the park or rental, contact Kevin Mc Carrick (631) 744-2505 daily till
