thoroughbred horse farm owned by August Belmont, according to Wikipedia.
The Belmont Lake State Park sits on the Southern State Parkway in Babylon, New York. It is very well used ,with a large main lake, and a walking trail that heads south to two more lake that are not officially park of the park. I have been to this park many times and it never disappoints.
|Belmont Lake Dam|
The Belmont lake dam is
small but useful as it created
a large lake enjoyed by fishermen and small paddle boats alike.
The weekends are popular for large hiking groups to visit.

The walkers enter a tunnel under the parkway and further south , there is another tunnel that runs under a highway.
The trails run along the Carlls River
It was becoming cloudy so the last 2 images aren't very clear, but this is another large body of water called Southards Pond that is connected to the trails that runs from Belmont Lake State park.
|Southards Pond is a favorite of fishermen.|
