Mattituck Park District
Mattituck Park District consists of 63 acres of parks, beaches, wetlands, and athletic fields located between Great Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound. Visitors to Mattituck can also enjoy visiting numerous vineyards and farms that make this region so attractive; visitors also take advantage of all that Mattituck has to offer, such as picnicking and hiking opportunities, as well as its vibrant cultural scene with restaurants and wineries nearby.
This district has successfully maintained its facilities without spending significant sums of money, thanks to volunteer commission members and no salary for commissioners. Residents seem highly satisfied with the services provided by this district; no one has ever been defeated during reelection bids, and voters have never rejected its annual budget.
In 1942, the district purchased Love Lane Beach for $7,500 – considered an incredible value at that time, given rising real estate costs. Two years later, Peconic Bay Boulevard at Wickham Avenue waterfront land was also purchased and was dubbed Veterans Memorial Park to honor war veterans in the district who served during World War II. Today, this beach draws large numbers of bathers and picnickers.
Wickham Avenue’s beautiful kettle lake provides the ideal setting for walking around, bird-watching, and taking in the view from one of its benches. Ice skating enthusiasts also frequent this spot during winter months; soccer fields and basketball courts in this park have illuminated night lighting, and its lake is currently under renovation but should be completed within several months.
Mr. Byrne had long dreamed of playing his music to an audience, yet was limited by COVID-19 from playing outside. To fill this void in Mattituck, Mr. Byrne and other commissioners came up with the concept for an outdoor concert series at Veterans Park, which they hoped would draw residents back into their communities and connect bands and audiences; today, it has become an annual tradition.
