For those who have never been to our field, it is located about 1.5 - 2 miles from the North end of the Seaford -Oyster Bay Expressway (rt 135) so access is very easy and quick. Once you exit onto Rt 25 - Jerricho Turnpike heding east, you make a left and head north on South Woods Rd about 1 mile and the park/preserve is on the right; 2 roads to follow to get to the field. Could be easier.
I have enclosed a picture of our field. We typically manicure the field to about soccer field grass height and often have a field that is on the order of about 300' x 500' - plenty of space for up to 15 pilots!!
This photo is only of the SouthEast corner. there is plenty still behind the photographer and to the North!!
Also, you can drive and park anywhere around the perimeter of the field. We usually congregate on the upwind side to minimize interactions with downwind running pilots.
