Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve

Merrick Road
Merrick, NY 11566


About Us:

Dedicated to the memory of the late New York State Sen. Norman J. Levy, a Merrick resident and a champion for the environment, Levy Park and Preserve opened to the public on Oct. 22, 2000. This award-winning Town of Hempstead preserve serves as a plant and wildlife sanctuary, as well as a tranquil respite for residents.

The conversion of the former Merrick Landfill into the Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve not only epitomizes the town's commitment to environmental conservation, but saved Hempstead Town taxpayers more than $42 million. The innovative $15 million park plan is substantially less expensive than the $57 million capping and closure plan originally required of the town by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
