Question of the Day: Peaceful Spots

There's a lot of places to relax and reflect in Massapequa, where do you go?

Massapequa has a little bit of everything, particularly looking for a respite. We have the Massapequa Preserve, TOBAY Beach, several parks and a beautiful shoreline.

We'd like to know where you go to get away from it all. What do you consider to be the most peaceful place in Massapequa?

Please answer in the comment section below.

Mine is the Massapequa Preserve. The walking paths are beautiful and quiet. The only negative to walking in the preserve is ALL the dogs walking off leash. I am a dog owner. Let me rephrase that, I am a responsible dog owner that takes other people into consideration, meaning I leash and pick up after both my dogs, no matter where I am walking them. Most of the dog owners that use the preserve do not pick up after their dogs or leash their dogs. Then, when asked to do so, act like they are doing you a favor. The park is for people, there are dog parks! No one wants to be confronted by a dog they do not know or step in a pile of dog defecation.

Massapequa Preserve! Accessible - no driving required; scenic, tranquil etc. Agree about the canine owners - the No Dogs Allowed signs are ignored - their "hey, my dog has to go somewhere" attitude = the I'm entitled attitude so prevalent these days and when you come across a steaming pile and ask them to clean-up - hey, that's not my dog . . . but then again dogs are not permitted in the Preserve in the first place - right?

same goes for John Burns Park. Those overpaid safety people do nothing about people who bring dogs into the park.

I recently moved into Mass Park. I walk my dog ON LEASH through the preserve. I pick up after him too. I stay OFF the paved bike path and walk on the dirt trail on the west side of the preserve. A cop car was back there the other day (on the dirt trail) and the officer issued me a warning. He said next time a summons. It's absurd that you can't walk a dog on leash through the woods. I am not interfering with anyone. I pay big taxes just like the bike riders and joggers......

So . . applying ur logic, I can say Yes, I do go through red lights when I'm driving but I go slowly = I'm responsible n yes I make forbidden right turns on red - but unlike everyone else I'm responsible n yes, itz true I take my licensed firearm :-) into the preserve but only to eliminate the rats and btw I do dispose of them responsibly SO - when the signs say - no guns, no dogs, no motorized vehicles . . I guess I say . . . since I am a responsible person I can ignore the law since it obviously does not apply to me . . . . just the rest of you law adiding citizens
