IN ADDITION to providing a resource for Long Islanders to find the perfect park to visit, we strongly believe that you should also know the history or background of that park. We also strongly believe that everyone should have a part in keeping Long Island natural and beautiful.
(We are also 100% positive the world would be a better place
if everyone would take a stroll in a park.)

A Message from the Founder
LIParks.net, otherwise known as the Long Island Parks Directory, was first started in 2007 by myself, Raymond Larsen. The initial domain was LIParks.org and was in the format of a simple wordpress blog. The blogs purpose was to provide detailed historical information that has been lost or forgotten in time.
Today LIParks.net has taken the place of LIParks.org and is now considered as the Long Island Park Directory, which is the original intent of the website.
As time progress’ LIParks.net will continue to evolve, it’s main purpose will always be to provide residents of Long Island with information on Parks, Nature Preserves and Historical Landmarks.
Feel free to reach out if you have the desire and passion to help educate Long Islanders on Long Island’s vast park system, there’s always room for contributors!
