Tanglewood Nature Preserve is a small park in Lynbrook that was renovated almost 10 years ago. It is on the edge of the village wedged between houses and the intersection of two important roads. It was always luscious and attractive but now is ill-maintained and overgrown.
The condition of the Preserve is unfortunate but it is at least getting some use from the kids attending science camp and the elderly folks in the nearby assisted living center. There used to be pathway from Tanglewood Preserve to Hempstead Lake State Park but that seems to have been abandoned completely and is now so overgrown that you cannot see it. Having lived in Colorado, where everything seemed so dusty and brown, Tanglewood is very alluring to me. It is sad to see this picturesque pond neglected.
