The FREE family fun festivities will continue until 2.  Activities will include a treasure hunt; guided nature walks; music and more.  Come explore the newly constructed bridges. Stroll along Stannards Brook. Discover new native plantings.  Relax on new benches or grassy fields.  Enjoy the natural surroundings at the Council Circle and amphitheater, designed for environmental education programs. 

Stannards Brook Park is a unique natural oasis in Port Washington.   The Port Washington Parks Conservancy (PWPC) has worked for over five years with Nassau County, neighbors, and friends to plan this one million dollar rehabilitation and restoration project.  Funding for the project was secured through the Nassau County Environmental Bond Act, the New York State Environmental Protection Fund, and a Town of North Hempstead grant.

I wonder if any of the descendants of Capt. Stannard will be in attendance? That would be very fitting and tie in the past with the present.

If you know of any descendants, please bring them along. Introduce them to any board member of Port Washington Parks Conservancy!
