What's Open Now on Long Island For Kids: Museums, Play Spaces, Farms, and More
Long Island is officially in Phase 4 of the state's reopening plan, meaning local arts, entertainment, and recreation activities are once again allowed to open their doors to visitors. Of course, social distancing and mask-wearing are still required for adults and children over the age of 2 (in most places). But isn't donning a kid-friendly mask a small price to pay to enjoy summer on the Island we love?
In addition to the museums, play spaces, and petting zoos who opened their doors in Phase 4, many Long Island pools and spraygrounds are open to local families, our famous beaches have been welcoming guests all summer, and berry picking out east is a safe and delicious activity for families looking to enjoy some outdoor bonding. Or, enjoy a social distancing-friendly drive-in movie from the comfort of your own car—as an added bonus, you can bring your own snacks!

Coronavirus safety restrictions often mean reservations are required or crowd size is capped, so it's a good practice to call before venturing out to confirm availability.
