Springtime is packed with tons of fun here on Long Island. As the weather begins to warm up, the possibilities in terms of entertainment and things to do begin to expand. The prospect of gardening and making our lawns green is something we look forward to after a long and cold winter. We cannot forget about cleaning up with Spring cleaning season upon us.

Once the ground begins to thaw, spending a day at a local park, going for a hike, planning a picnic, or generally enjoying the great outdoors starts to sound a whole lot more fun! Coming off such a harsh winter, many trees and plants likely won’t bloom until May this year, but when they pop our parks will be host to a wide variety of pretty colors.
