Sandy Shores Outdoor Exhibition
Along the Jones Beach bicycle path next to the Wantagh Parkway is the
permanent exhibition "Sandy Shores," curated by Long Island Traditions.
The 3-section exhibition explores the history and construction of the
Wantagh Parkway, one of the first parkways created by Robert Moses, the
history of Jones Beach, Moses' first state park on Long Island, and the
South Shore's maritime culture.
The exhibition includes stories and recollections of those who built and
worked on the Wantagh Parkway and Jones Beach, along with fishermen and
baymen who plied the surrounding waters for clams, oysters and other seafood.
There are historic and contemporary photographs of these captivating subjects.
The exhibition begins in Cedar Creek Park in Wantagh and ends at the bicycle
parking lot next to the Jones Beach Theatre.
