The Super Awesome ACNL Garden Party will be held at the beautiful Clark Botanic Gardens in Albertson, NY. It is literally a 2 second walk from the Albertson train station.
Northern State Parkway: Take exit 29 (Roslyn Road), turn South onto Roslyn Road, then right onto I.U. Willets Road, followed by a right into the Clark Botanic Garden parking field, just before the railroad crossing.
Long Island Expressway: Take exit 37, and turn South onto Willis Ave. Go about 1 mile, and then turn left onto I. U. Willets Road. Go approx. 4 blocks, crossing over railroad tracks. Clark Garden is on your left.
Take any LIRR train to Jamaica Station. At Jamaica, transfer to the Oyster Bay Line (light green line – check your timetables!). Albertson station is a 20 minute train ride from Jamaica station. The Garden is immediately east of the station. Insider’s Tip: You can also transfer to the Oyster Bay line from the Mineola train station, so if you are coming from Huntington, Ronkonkoma or Farmingdale, you don’t have to ride all the way to Jamaica to reach the Oyster Bay line!
N23 or N27 bus to I.U. Willets Road, then walk east 1/4 mile.
