About Cantiague Park

Cantiague Park, located at 480 West John Street in Hicksville, has been part of the Nassau County Park system since 1961. Cantiague Park was the first County Park offering a swimming pool and an artificial skating rink. Additionally, this 127-acre park offers a renovated 18-hole miniature golf course, 9-hole, par-30 golf course, driving range, five lighted tennis courts, six lighted handball/paddleball courts, three lighted basketball courts, four lighted softball fields and four multi-sport fields, two of which are lighted. In the summer of 2008, the park opened a new and beautiful artificial turf field to accommodate football, soccer and lacrosse and is also lighted for night play. Cantiague Park also includes a playground, two reserved picnic areas, shuffleboard courts, a bocci court, and tables with inlaid chess and checker boards.
