Oak Brush Plains Stat
Deer Park locals can easily see what the area surrounding Deer Park must have looked like years ago via a quick trip to Oak Brush Plains State Preserve. The preserve runs more than 800-plus acres of pine barrens, a rare type of forest habitat, though patches of aspen grove and grassland also appear within the preserve. Many animal populations make their home in the preserve. While the preserve has the intent to stay as natural as is reasonably possible, there are marked foot and bike trails for people to use. The preserve even has a model airplane flying field.
