How Massapequa Students Spend Time in the Preserve

The Massapequa Preserve has been around for ages. It is a place where people feel like they can escape reality as they enter through a forest-like setting. For the most part, the Preserve has a long trail for walking and biking. But what exactly goes on there?

Many citizens of Nassau County have passed through the preserve. Also, people bring their dogs, as it is convenient due to the Preserve’s peaceful and quiet surroundings. 

Most common of all, many bike through the park, making stops or going the full distance. When you go on the trail, you will see many people on their bikes riding down the path for exercise and to get away from their busy lives.

The Massapequa Preserve is a common area to hang out and relax with friends, family, and loved ones. There are many activities to do such as fishing, biking, walking, and playing catch. 

The Massapequa Preserve is a wonderful place to go. Mackenzie Collin, who goes often, enjoys seeing “the different kinds of animals.” Mackenzie is curious about where the dirt paths lead to and end. When asked what she does when going to the Preserve, Mackenzie stated that she rides her bike, goes adventuring, and hangs out with friends. 

The Massapequa Preserve is, in no doubt, a safe haven for animals and wildlife. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it is always safe for people, of which have pointed out the weird occurrences  they have heard from friends and online. An example would be seeing everyday objects that don’t belong in the woods. The main path is primarily the safe route to travel through, but there are also dirt trails that go further into the Preserve for exploration. At night especially, “there are weird things on the dirt trails”, seniorNatasha Lichtwarclaims. 

When going anywhere, it’s important to be mindful of your surroundings. The same goes for the Preserve; it is a place that can be dangerous like anywhere else. With the right safety and caution, though, it is still considered one of the best places to visit. Junior Olivia Burger claims “the preserve is a wonderful addition to Massapequa for families and kids to explore nature.”This is indeed the case, as others tend to agree.

There are hundreds of trees surrounding the preserve. On beautiful sunny days, the birds are chirping and flying through the trees. If you look closely, you can see mother nature at its finest. There are birds, squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, rabbits, and even snakes! Don’t worry, they are after their prey and stay far from humans. 

Overall, the Massapequa Preserve is a fantastic place to visit. Going there with loved ones will make for some special memories. The preserve is filled with various trails and paths that you can travel on.
