Meditative Places : Downstate New York



Swan Lake Bayard Cutting Arboratum
Great River, NY

This 641-acre arboretum on the south shore of Long Island has nature walks with labeled plants & trees & a historic house that has been converted into a museum of bird, insect & Native American arrow exhibits. A great place for birdwatching.





Woodland Deer Heckscher State Park
East Islip, NY

This 1,657 acre park has three beaches on the Great South Bay, a pool, camping and fishing facilities, bridle paths, bike and hiking paths, nature trails and a picnic area. It's a great place for deerwatching :-)







Connetquot Connetquot River State Park
Oakdale, NY

This 3,473-acre park offers guided nature walks, trout fishing, hiking trails & bridle paths. This place is big compared to the number of people who pass through it so if you're the solitary type you can easily wander around for hours without seeing anyone who's not feathered or furry :-)







Island Sunset West Sayville County Golf Course
West Sayville, NY

A nice place to visit even if you don't play golf. The entrance to this 256-acre course is lined with majestic maple trees. With fairways extending from both sides of the entrance to protected wetlands, this is truly an idyllic setting.
