Heckscher Park, is considered by many to be the "Central Park" of Huntington village.A gift to the people of Huntington by the late financier and philanthropist August Heckscher and his wife Nannie A. Heckscher, the eighteen (18) acres of parkland and the Heckscher Museum of Art is one of the focal points for culture, education and social activity in Huntington. The park passed from the Heckscher Trust to the Town of Huntington in 1954 and has been under Town stewardship for more than a half century. The park is now home to Huntington's Annual Fall Festival, Summer Arts Festival, and Spring Tulip Festival. Its pond, play areas and beautiful gardens provide a tranquil rest spot in the midst of busy downtown Huntington, a few minutes’ walk away.
