Share Info About Floral Park
The Incorporated Village of Floral Park, New York was founded in 1908. Originally part of Queens County, the Village's history actually begins in 1874, and it began out of an area called East Hinsdale. After the formation of the County of Nassau in 1899, the area to become the Incorporated Village of Floral Park was moved. Though it is closed during the Winter months, those living in Floral Park, New York can enjoy the Centennial Gardens Bird Sanctuary during the nicer weather. The Village of Floral Park was home to an active storm basin for over seventy years. When it became unnecessary, the twelve acre area was determined over the course of two years. Residents of Floral Park decided to use the space as a recreational area that focuses on trees and birds already living there. These residents formed the Floral Park Conservation Society (FPCS). This nonprofit organization has donated over three thousand hours of labor to transform the land into a garden and bird sanctuary. The Floral Park Recreation Center is open daily for residents between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm. Access is limited to those living in the Incorporated Village of Floral Park. Guests are permitted, but only with a Village resident. The Recreation Center includes a playground, numerous fields for various sports, and a newly renovated pool.
