Nearby Nissequogue River State Park is a gem throughout the year, but the pot was sweetened that much more this past weekend when visitors were able to experience the beauty of the park via horse and wagon tour.
The sold out tour was the first held by the Nissequogue River State Park Foundation and provided a a unique perspective into the park's history and environment, as well as breathtaking views of the Nissequogue River and the Long Island Sound.
Forest Biologist and outdoor educator Carolyn Flynn from Kings Park, led the tour.
"Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the park helped make the day enjoyable and memorable for all the participants," said Mike Rosato, chairman for the NRSP Foundation.
The tour, sponsored by the Reichert Family, IGA Fort Salonga and Larkfield Supermarkets and Sign-A-Rama, also included a photography display by local photographer Frank Mercuri on local landscape and wildlife.
According to Rosato, proceeds from the tour will be used to help enhance and beautify the park.
The foundation's next event will be the 4th Annual 5K Sunset Run and 1K Fun
Run on Saturday, June 9th. Click here to register.
