Brightwaters is a small village in Suffolk County, New York.
Once formally a part of the Town of Islip, Brightwaters became incorporated as
a village in its own right in 1916. Extending from the waters of the Great South
Bay, this lovely little place is the perfect relaxing escape for you and your
pup. There aren’t any vets in the village of Brightwaters, but there are several animal hospitals and vet clinics in nearby towns of Islip, Bay Shore and Deer Park.
The Brightwaters Canal and Cascade Lakes provide many opportunities for water recreation and walks along the banks. The many large, affluent homes that line the canals are a sight to behold, carefully mixed with the aquatic life and natural beauty of the region. It is such a pretty area, in fact these ‘sparkling ponds’ are what gave the village its name in 1880 – Brightwaters.
The village has some great little parks to check out with your pup and go for an on-lead walk, the most significant being Gilbert Park and Walker Park down at the marina. Whoseepee Park is another lovely spot further up near the town centre, where you will find an open grassed area, plenty of space for a walk and a playground for the kids.
So relax, enjoy the beautiful surroundings of this place as you travel with your pup – you are both sure to love your stay.
