Massapequa Park is a station on the Babylon Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. It is officially located on New York State Route 27 and Park Boulevard in Massapequa Park, New York, although there are parking lots along Front Street and north of the station. All parking lots require Village of Massapequa Park residential permits.
Massapequa Park Station is typical of the elevated Babylon Branch trains that were rebuilt during the mid-to-late 20th Century. The station originally opened as a platformed shelter on December 3, 1933, east of Massapequa Station where Robert Moses wanted to extend the Bethpage State Parkway. It was replaced in 1966 by a temporary station which remained in use until the current elevated station opened on December 13, 1980, making it the last station to be elevated along the Babylon Branch. Some morning rush-hour westbound trains originate at Massapequa Park Station. This station is also a terminus for some eastbound rush-hour trains in the afternoon.
Platform and tracks
The station has one 12-car-long high-level island platform between the two tracks.
