Much of the creek below Hylan Boulevard, and a long strip of shoreline to the west, is part of the 105.77 acre Lemon Creek Park, established in 1962. The park includes the Seguine Mansion. The northern, wooded portion of the park forms the 15.99 acre (6.47 ha) Lemon Creek Park Preserve. Wolfe’s Pond and its source, Wolfe Brook, comprise the 341.33 acre (138.13 ha) Wolfe’s Pond Park. The upper reaches of Lemon Creek, and most of Sandy Brook flow through Bloomingdale Park, 138.67 acres.
For stargazing, check out the beach at the end of Seguine Avenue, according to our friend’s recommendation! “If you are facing the ocean, all of the city lights get drowned out behind you and it gets nice and dark. The sounds of the ocean water enhances any stargazing session at this small park that leads to a tiny beach, soothing your soul and connecting you to the universe.” now, who couldn’t benefit from that!
