Smack in the middle of Long Island rests the Hamlet of Holtsville, a haven for families amidst all of the bustle of Suffolk County. The village was renamed in 1860 after the U.S. Postmaster General Joseph Holt and has grown from a handful of houses into a bustling suburbia. Attractions are plentiful for the whole family, with the Holtsville Park and the Harold H. Malkmes Wildlife Education and Ecology Center.
Holtsville Park is a one-stop shop for family entertainment; pools, trails, greenhouses, a nature reserve, and an ecology center all make for an enjoyable day trip.

A zany tradition at the park for Groundhog Day: see Holtsville Hal and get the weather prediction for the year.
