The South Shore Blueway Plan establishes a water trail along Nassau County’s south shore and is the result of a community-wide trail planning process that identified access points and gaps where further water access is needed to complete the trail.

Designed by Going Coastal, Inc. and Cameron Engineering & Associates, LLP to be a blueprint to cover the development, implementation, maintenance and use of the South Shore Blueway Trail, the plan is a collaborative effort of New York State, Nassau County, Village of Freeport, Town of Hempstead and the Town of Oyster Bay. A key element of the new South Shore Blueway Trail Plan is sustainable, American Disability Act compliant access. The plan also proposes developing a branding strategy and provides for interpretive and educational opportunities that will encourage understanding of the south shore ecosystem and maritime heritage.

While project planning began a year ago, recognition of the need for the plan began with the 2006 Nassau County Environmental Bond Act when the county legislature approved the proposal for the creation of a watertrail on the south shore. In November 2008, the Village of Freeport joined with Nassau County to obtain matching funds from a Local Waterfront Revitalization Grant from the New York State Department of State under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
