In conjunction with National Trails Day on June 4th, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony Santino, Hempstead Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, State Senator Todd Kaminsky and members of Going Coastal announced the official opening of the South Shore Blueway Trail at Bay Park in East Rockaway.

County Executive Mangano stated, “More than 1,000 residents collaborated in the planning process to develop this beautiful South Shore Blueway Trail stretching across the entire south shore of Nassau County. The trail offers residents and visitors a new and exciting recreational opportunity to explore our waterways while also promoting a healthy lifestyle.”

The South Shore Blueway is made up of 22 launches and landings providing safe, easily reached water access for nonmotorized boaters to explore the western bays of the South Shore Estuary Reserve and experience its beauty visiting its numerous parks, historic sites, natural areas, and attractions. Visitors can discover the unique characteristics and abundant wildlife.

“Hempstead Town and I are proud to partner with the South Shore Blueway along our bays and waterways, further enhancing environmental preservation and conservation in our community. As a member of the Blueway Advisory Committee, our municipality is excited to welcome this innovative water trail for non-motorized boats like kayaks to the area. Neighbors and visitors to America's largest township can now enjoy this accessible, safe and enjoyable experience around our shores,” said Town of Hempstead Supervisor Anthony J. Santino

The project was approved as part of the 2006 Nassau County Environmental Bond Act Program. In 2008, the Village of Freeport joined with Nassau County and obtained matching funds from a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) Grant from the New York State Department of State under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
