Hoyt Farm, Commack, NY
The Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve, located at 200 New Highway, Commack, New York, has much to offer and has proven to be fun for the whole family. There are many attractions and loads of activities possible at the preserve and the best part is, it's open 365 days a year! A nature center, the Hoyt House Museum, and a children's water playground are only a few reasons why families flock here year round.
With a front lawn acres wide equipped with a baseball field, playground, and picnic tables, Smithtown residents don't hesitate to enjoy some fun in the sun. There are also grill pits in several locations for those who would like to bring and enjoy their own food. Passed the front field, visitors will enjoy a nature preserve of farm animals such as a bull, pig, chickens, sheep, goats, etc. In the Nature Center house, which is open Memorial Day through Labor Day, there are also live animals such as snakes, frogs, salamanders, turtles, and fish. It's a great place for people of all ages to come and not just enjoy themselves, but also learn something new about all sorts of animals.
For those of you who enjoy staying active, along with the large field to play sports, there are extensive wooded trails to enjoy hiking or biking. To get an even more detailed looked at the Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve, I've included a video of Smithtown Spotlight, which displays an in-depth look at some of the most attractive opportunities available.
Along with the preserve's everyday attractions to enjoy, Hoyt Farm also offers many programs and day camps to send your children. Some of these programs include "Animals on the Farm," "Maple Sugaring," "Pond Life," "Critter Camouflage," and "Hibernation & Migration." The preserve also hosts summer concerts every year, which always attracts many residents to come, set up a blanket on the grass, and enjoy some live music.
The Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve Homepage is available for directions, parking and contact information.
I encourage Smithtown and local residents to check out the preserve and enjoy some quality time with family and friends!
