About Cantiague Park
Cantiague Park has been part of the Nassau County Park system since 1961 and is centrally located in Hicksville, just off the Northern State Parkway and east of the Wantagh State Parkway. When the park opened, it represented the second major park the County managed, in addition to Eisenhower Park, and was a response to the needs of a growing County population. It was also the first park offering a swimming pool and an artificial skating rink. This 127-acre park offers: a renovated 18-hole miniature golf course, 9-hole, par-30 golf course, driving range, five lighted tennis courts, six lighted handball/paddleball courts, three lighted basketball courts, four lighted softball fields and four multi-sport fields, two of which are lighted. In the summer of 2008, the park opened a new and beautiful artificial turf field to accommodate football, soccer and lacrosse and is also lighted for night play. Additionally, Cantiague Park has a playground, two reserved picnic areas, shuffleboard courts, a bocci court, and tables with inlaid chess and checker boards.
