Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday the completion of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway’s third and final section in Babylon.
The final section allows cyclists, runners, skaters, and walkers to enjoy the scenic waterfront.
The 10-mile path runs from Tobay Bach to Captree State Park in the towns of Babylon and Islip and was completed three months ahead of schedule.
New plantings were added along the path, as well as safety precautions for pedestrians.
"We are making record investments in our tourism industry and state infrastructure to enrich the lives of Long Island residents," says Gov. Cuomo. “The completion of this project, three months ahead of schedule, is a testament to our commitment to bringing safe and smart transportation alternatives to Long Island all while highlighting Long Island's natural beauty and rich beachside history."
