PLANT THE PARK
About the Area
Bethpage State Park is a 1,477-acre (5.98 km2) New York state park on the border of Nassau County and Suffolk County on Long Island. The park contains tennis courts, picnic and recreational areas and a polo field, but is best known for its five golf courses, including the Bethpage Black Course, which hosted the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Golf Championships.
The park is not located in Bethpage as its name suggests, but is rather located almost entirely within the hamlet of Old Bethpage, despite having a Farmingdale postal address from the day it opened in 1934.
