After a long winter, we can’t wait for spring – and since the first day of the season is coming up on Thursday, March 19, we don’t have to wait for much longer! Soon, you can wipe out that cabin fever and get outside for some biking, hiking, walking and exploring – as long as you keep your distance from others enjoying the great outdoors.

One of the best parts of the springtime is wandering some of the parks near our Alston apartments and taking in the fresh air, whether you decide to go for a breather alone, with a loved one or just with Fido for an afternoon out. If this sounds good to you, check out these parks near your Alston apartment!

Lake Ronkonkoma County Park, located at Lake Shore Rd, Lake Ronkonkoma which is eight minutes from your Alston apartment, is a lakeside park with baseball fields, basketball and handball courts, plus a fishing pier and picnic area.

This park is a great destination for the whole family, as it has something for every age and is always bustling with Ronkonkoma neighbors. Plus, it’s well-kept and has exceptional facilities that are ripe for use during any time of year.

Lakeland County Park, located at Johnson Ave, Islandia which is eight minutes from your Alston apartment, is a popular, 70-acre park that includes a picnic area with a gazebo, boardwalks, shuffleboard and basketball courts (which will be patiently waiting for you after quarantine rules).

Visitors are especially fond of the nature trail-boardwalk over the headwaters of the Connetquot River here, affording unique views of wetlands, vegetation, waterfowl and wildlife. This park is also designed to be accessible to those who are disabled.
