Formerly known as Roundtree Park (likely for its entrance on Roundtree Drive), this 94 acre park and trail was rededicated in the memory of the former Director of Environmental Protection of the Town of Huntington from 1973 to 1980, during which period the town won the “Beautify America” award twice. Dr. Jeffrey Wenig was also a well known inventor and toxicologist, having developed several pharmaceutical products. The park ends on a piece of the Half Hollow Hills School District property. According to the town’s online trail guide, “the parkland consists of rolling hills that are a higher elevation than much of Long Island due their location on the southern edge of the Ronkonkoma Moraine, a remnant of past glacial advances.” A wide variety of flora and fauna can be enjoyed while walking the trail of this park.
