Wantagh Park is waterfront park with so much to do
A waterfront park with so much to do! News 12's Elisa DiStefano takes us on a Road Trip: Close to Home to Wantagh Park.
The 111-acre county park in Wantagh has something for everyone.
There's a paved path that wraps all around the park, so you can bike or hike or walk. There is even a fitness trail, plus athletic fields and courts.
A fishing pier is just beyond the marina.
There's an 18-hole miniature golf course, and two impressive playgrounds.
But, if you really want to make a splash with your little ones, and you are a Nassau County resident, there is a fun interactive water play area.
There are two water slides, a kiddie pool, and also an Olympic sized main pool and diving pool.
The pool area is for Nassau residents only, but the park is open to everyone on weekdays, and just for Nassau County residents on weekends and holidays until after Labor Day.
