FRANK J. & LILLIAN G. SCHWARTZ NATURE PRESERVE
Off Monsey Heights Road, Monsey, Rockland County, NY
Drive east on Route 59; turn right on New County Road; turn left onto Monsey Heights Road to park entrance approximately 1200 feet on the right.
The park is southwest of Monsey Glen across from the New York State Thruway.
5/13/2003. For the life of me I could not find the preserve even though I went back and forth on Monsey Heights Road. There was no sign, no clear parking area, and no clear preserve looking area.
1981 -- the Schwartz family gave the land as a gift in memory of their parents Lillian G. and Frank J. Schwartz. Dr. Schwartz was a physician in Spring Valley for fifty years and served on the Village Board. Mrs. Schwartz was a member of the Spring Valley Auxiliary to Good Samaritan Hospital, the PTA and the Business and Professional Women's Association and started several philanthropic organizations.
Orange and Rockland high tension line powercut; small wetlands in the middle of the park.
