A hidden gem in Long Island, Avalon Park & Preserve is a nature lover’s paradise – with more than 80 acres of trails, a wildflower meadow, habitat for numerous woodland animals, many species of ferns.
The park was created by the Paul Simons Foundation with the goal of reflecting Paul’s love of nature and the outdoors.
Avalon was established to celebrate the life of Paul Simons, whose years among friends and family were prematurely interrupted, yet whose spirit and creative energy remain vibrantly alive in the natural world he cherished.
