The 8 acres that comprise Avalon Park & Preserve were once a residential site, probably abandoned in the early 1900s. By 1997, when the Paul Simons Foundation purchased the land, years of neglect had allowed many non-native species of vines and shrubs to invade and dominate, smothering plants, destroying large trees and making the area virtually impenetrable.
The first step in the site’s transformation was to engage Andropogon Associates, an ecologically oriented landscape architecture firm. They proposed to transform the property into a series of woodland gardens and paths celebrating the native flora of Long Island. Following Andropogon’s plan, local landscapers cleared the land of invasive and diseased growth. Thousands of native trees, shrubs and grasses were then planted. Paths and walkways were constructed and a labyrinth and sculpture were installed. The final result was a tranquil space for all to enter and all to enjoy.

Avalon Preserve is a 76 acre tract of fields and forests, connecting to Avalon Park by the red trail, which crosses Rhododendron Road to the west. Historic Shep Jones Lane and a network of hiking paths provide access to all parts of the preserve and also connect to the Nature Conservancy’s East Farm Preserve adjoining Avalon from the south. All together there are approximately 140 acres of protected land for wildlife habitat and human enjoyment.

The farm fields, in agricultural use for as many as 300 years, have been turned into grass and wildflower meadows. In addition to pleasing the eye, this environment encourages population by birds and small animals, which require and can thrive in such an environment.

The steeply sloped forest has trails that run through several native plant communities, where one may observe massive oaks and American beech, black birch, red maple, and hickories, dogwoods, sassafras, spice bush and re-sprouting American chestnut. The diverse understory includes many species of ferns and wildflowers, native to the area and typifying Long Island’¹s woodland heritage.

The preserve also provides habitat for numerous woodland animals such as rabbits, squirrels, red fox, box turtles, and many bird species.
Enjoy your visit to Avalon. If this beautiful place embodies a message, it is that life is determinedly vital. Our responsibility is to recognize its value

The State Lands Interactive Mapper (SLIM) is an internet mapping tool that allows users to discover recreational features such as roads, trails, and parking lots on DEC owned lands, print maps, and obtain supported information on the use of state owned forest lands. In addition to general mapping of recreational features, SLIM provides for limited spatial data analysis. Supporting these functions SLIM is a dynamic map interface that the user can manipulate with common mapping tools such as: zoom, pan, identify, print, search, and more.

This nearly 3,500-acre refuge of sandy pine barrens, wetlands, ponds and woodlands is nestled in central Long Island along the pristine, spring-fed Connetquot River. A wilderness surrounded by suburbs, the preserve provides excellent opportunities to see more than 200 bird and 300 plant species, as well as several mammal, reptile, amphibian, butterfly and moth species that once flourished throughout Long Island.
