Directions via Google Maps
This park is named for the Long Island Motor Parkway; a private toll road built in 1908 by the young auto enthusiast William K. Vanderbilt Jr. (1849-1920). One of the first concrete roads in the nation, the parkway originally stretched 48 miles from Queens to Lake Ronkonkoma. While only portions remain, the section that begins here and ends at Cunningham Park has been restored as part of the NYC Greenway program, a planned network of over 350 miles of landscaped bicycle and pedestrian paths throughout the city.
