Hallock State Park Preserve offers a total of 225 acres. Hallock State Park Preserve is a shorefront park preserve that offers nearly one mile of pristine beachfront on the North Shore of Long Island along the Long Island Sound.

Hiking, nature walks, and bird watching are available. Development of the remainder of the preserve is in the planning stages and may include formal trails, environmental education, and activities appropriate for a park preserve.

Project: In celebration of I Love My Park Day 2021, join the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society for a beach walk and clean-up at Hallock State Park Preserve. As we walk along the beach, we will look for signs of local wildlife and pick-up debris before it can wash back into the Long Island Sound and potentially harm marine life. We will maintain social distancing and masks are required. All beach clean-up supplies will be provided, but it is recommended to bring your own gloves.
