Veterans Park is located on Bellerose Avenue, between Larkfield and Old Bridge road in East Northport, NY, bordering the Bellerose Elementary School.
Over the past years the Town and Suffolk County have acquired Federal surplus land from the Northport Veterans Medical Center and private owners creating three parks: Knolls County Park, Meadowlark Park (mountain bike trails) and Veterans Park, one of the jewels in the Town system.
Among the dozens of facilities at Veterans Park is the Boundless Playground created with the assistance of the non-profit organization, Boundless Playgrounds, Inc. and named “Mr. P’s Playground” in honor of a distinguished Northport teacher, Christopher Pendergast. It is a state of the art play area for children of all abilities designed to exacting ADA standards for accessibility and variety of challenging and fun equipment.
Veterans Park Skate Park
The new concrete skate park at Veterans Park includes both street and vertical bowl areas. It was built by Site Design Group and California Skate Parks – two of the premier skateboard companies in the country. The street area is a plaza-type design and consists of various small ramps, stairs, handrails, and low box features including pump bump rollers, stairs with hubbas and handrails, a pier 1 ledge, banked hips, hubba ledges, euro gaps, and small wall rides and quarter pipes. The concrete vertical bowl area consists of two bowls. The first vertical bowl area is a 3 elevation amoeba bowl with pool coping and tile with depths of 6.5 ft., 7.5 ft., and 10 ft. The second vertical bowl is a flow course, which varies in depth from 6.5 ft. to 8.5 ft. There is a 6.5 ft. deep area with a half pipe area and an oververt (past vertical) pocket and hips and concludes at a bowl at a depth of 8.5 ft. This park can be used for rollerblading and skateboards. (BMX bikes are prohibited.)
