New, 100-Acre Park Is the Latest Addition to the Town’s Extensive Parks System
Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine and Deputy Supervisor Dan Panico were joined by local community groups, civic associations, residents and Suffolk County Legislator Jim Mazzarella on October 9 for the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for Phase One of the new Patriots Preserve in Shirley.
This state-of-the-art park, which is situated on 100 acres, includes a playground, walking trails, lake with floating bridge, kayak launch, rest rooms and more. It is located on the former Links Golf Course at the east end of Colony Preserve Drive, off William Floyd Parkway in Shirley. The new park is now open seven days a week from dawn to dusk.
