The Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve is located in Merrick on the Southern Shores of Long Island. The man-made park boasts stunning views on the Manhattan skyline. What was once a landfill was transformed into a public park in 2000.

Various trails bring visitors straight to the top of the hill on which the park is situated. This marks the highest point on Long Island with an altitude of around 120 feet. Exercise stations punctuate the trails for active visitors to take advantage of. For a more relaxing day visitors can take a guided tour around the park with a park ranger or utilize the fishing or bird watching areas. 

Kayaking is available from June through August. You can launch your own kayak, go on a guided kayak tour, or rent a kayak from the park.
