Center At Cheesequake State Park
The Interpretive Center provides the public with an educational journey through the ecosystems at Cheesequake State Park. Live displays of animals residing in the park make the Center a wonderful place to visit and learn. Exhibits depicting local history are also included. As you enter the building take notice of the large murals depicting three ecosystems at the Park. The plants and animals located on each mural are found specifically in the illustrated environment.
