This park has become one of the cornerstones of Copiague. Located on Long Island’s Great South Bay, this diverse park is home to many different athletic fields and other forms of amusements. This park is owned and maintained by the Town of Babylon. Within the park are baseball, football, lacrosse, softball, and soccer fields, as well as basketball and tennis courts. The teams that play on these various fields are under the supervision of the “Copiague Youth League.” Within this league are players from the age of four to, generally, age seventeen or eighteen. Other amenities include: a boat launching station, fishing, food service or “hut,” marina, picnic area, playground, senior center, swimming at the beach. This large park is haven to the entire Copiague community. At Tanner Park one can expect to find people of all ages enjoying the park’s many attractions at any time, all year round.
Although the fields change from year to year, in order to keep them in the best condition possible, there are generally six soccer fields; five fields for intramural teams, and one for travel teams. There are also five baseball fields and one softball field. Four of the baseball fields are for little league teams, while one is reserved for “majors,” typically players 18 years and older, including a men’s league. Three tennis and basketball courts also contribute to the parks facilities. With the additions of a football/lacrosse field, there is a field for every kind of sports lover out there.
In addition to the sports complex part of the park, Tanner Park also includes a playground and beach. These attractions are opened to the public, for use at any time. During the summer months, there is a day camp that is held on the beach. In addition to the beach, there is a fishing pier, as well as a marina with a boat launching station.
