The Deer Park Station has been renovated
Deer Park Station is on the Ronkonkoma Branch, where it serves approximately 6,200 customers each weekday. The completed improvements to this station include interior and exterior building renovations and platform renewal, free Wi-Fi, USB charging stations, and digital information totems. The area surrounding the station has been rehabilitated with sidewalk and curb improvements and new bike racks. William Low’s “Deer Park Dahlias” (2018) has been installed in the station building: Low’s scene of vibrantly colored dahlias in a pastoral field creates a contemplative space in the station waiting room – the large-scale flowers shift the viewer’s perspective, providing an experience of childlike wonder at the natural world.
With the completion of the Double Track Project, the upgraded Deer Park Station is a crucial contributor to the ability of LIRR to accommodate future increases in ridership. Enhancements to Deer Park Station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to support the growth and development of Long Island.
