Long Island is a bustling area full of businesses and development, but there is plenty of nature to appreciate here as well. Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park is one of many beautiful parks that our Long Island personal injury lawyers enjoy visiting in this region. It’s both a park and a beach, with plenty of fun outdoor activities to take part in when the weather is nice. Some of the reasons why we frequently visit Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park include:
The beach is located on Oyster Bay. Be aware that the sand is covered in rocks. However, it’s still quite a scenic area and we definitely enjoy long walks along the beach. Just make sure you bring some beach shoes to protect your feet from the rocks. You can also enjoy a relaxing swim here during the summertime. If you enjoy fishing, you can also get some angling in at the shore here or just take your boat out for a relaxing day on the water.
Biking and Roller Blading
The park features a bike and rollerblade path which runs along the entire length of the beach. If you like getting some exercise in with a backdrop of beautiful nature and history, then Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park is a must-see.
Anyone who enjoys playing sports outside will have a fun time at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, as there are plenty of athletic facilities here:
- Tennis courts
- Football fields
- Soccer fields
- Basketball courts
- Baseball fields
- Handball courts
Organize a game with family and friends or just show up and see if anyone needs an extra teammate.
Barbeques and Picnics
If you’re looking for a picturesque location to host a family BBQ or picnic, Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park is a fine choice. They have several BBQ pavilions which are available for party rentals, along with several picnic tables that also have BBQs and a covered gazebo to eat under.
Oyster Bay Festival
Each year, the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park hosts the annual Oyster Bay Festival. This is the East Coast’s largest waterfront festival and over 200,000 visitors attend it each year. It’s been running for 35 years. There are a variety of fun activities here – some have been a part of the event since it’s inception, while new ones have been added throughout the years.
