Conservation Society Celebrates June Garden Party at Centennial Gardens


Floral Park residents have many reasons to visit Centennial Gardens this summer, including the upcoming Garden Party fundraiser on June 4. The 12-acre parcel of land has serviced the residents of the Village of Floral Park for more than 70 years as an active storm basin.

The Floral Park Conservation Society is celebrating the opening of its 11th year with a return of the very popular ‘Garden Party’ on Saturday evening, June 4.  Join FPCS for an evening of music and various beverages in the beautiful upper gardens of Centennial Gardens, which begins at 5 p.m. and runs until dark, around 9 p.m.  Tickets are available for $25 per adult with all the proceeds going to enhance the various gardens and the development of phase 1 of the Japanese stroll garden.

This year, live music will feature Kevin Waite on the Raff Avenue overlook area and Twin Gold playing near the newly rebuilt waterfall on Carnation Avenue. Four adult refreshment stands will be set up around the developed upper path inside the fence. Finger food and appetizers will be available at the refreshment areas beginning at 6 p.m. Soda and water will be available at the stands as well.

Please support the continuing efforts of FPCS in building Centennial Gardens by joining us on June 4. For tickets, contact any FPCS volunteer or Steve or Mary at 516-352-5383 or

The FPCS received the 501(c)(3) non-profit status through the Internal Revenue Service thus allowing donors to deduct contributions to the FPCS from their taxes. The FPCS has dedicated more than 3,000 hours of labor in the last 18 months to begin the long, arduous process of transforming the barren lands into a landmark garden and bird sanctuary. Centennial Gardens is open seven days a week from noon until 5 p.m., weather permitting.
