I first created LIParks in 2007 as a simple blog style website that was loaded up with random information about the history or Long Island's vast park system. Eventually the website was turned into a directory style where people would be able to filter parks based on their preferences. I have also started including historic articles and news in regards to Long Island's public lands, parks, and historic sites.
