Get out into nature this summer with a visit to Heckscher State Park. Located about 25 miles from our boutique inn, this popular park is a great place to kick off summer on Long Island. Plan an outing for all ages during the annual Heckscher State Park's Outdoor Festival.
On June 18th, you can bring the whole family to participate in nature walks, children's crafts, seed planting, and educational environmental programs. Visit booths from local organizations such as the Department of Environmental Conservation, outdoor recreation clubs, local businesses, the Greenbelt Trail Association, and other "green" vendors. Your kids can enjoy face painting and hop around inflatables (weather permitting) for a memorable day in the great outdoors filled with good times and important causes. Learning about the environment has never been more fun!
Refreshments will be available for purchase or you can pack in a picnic find a shady spot to relax. On the way to the park, you can swing by Fairway Market to pick up groceries and snacks for a tasty meal. It is located just five minutes from The Inn at Fox Hollow. Admission is free but there is a $10 entry fee per vehicle.
