Environment & Conservation

Environmental and preservation programs are part of our commitment to implement conservation policies and oversee passive parkland. 

We dedicate ourselves to provide parks, preserve open space and to protect the natural environment.  We are devoted to sustaining this operating model in order to leave a legacy for future generations who continue to use the parks.

Our goal is to protect open space, connect children to nature and engage communities in conservation practices.

The National Recreation and Parks Associations "Three Pillars,"

are values our district shares.  We strive to positively impact the Great Neck community in all of these areas; CONSERVATION, especially so. 

Sustainability and green operations are ongoing initiatives for the Park District.  Working hand in hand with community organizations such as the "Open Space Committee" and  "Great Neck Garden Club,"  are just two examples of how we are working toward achieving those green initiatives.  

The Park District continues to be successful, moving one step closer to providing a legacy for our future generation park users!
