Serenity Garden Is Plainview’s Oasis

Once an overgrown, garbage-filled lot, the corner of Old Country and Central Park roads has been transformed by the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce into an oasis of flowers, shrubbery, ornaments, whimsy and memories. That place is Serenity Garden.

Landscaped gardens, a pergola and brick paths line Serenity Garden. Plainview’s “Horse of a Different Color,” wearing sneakers, stands guard, watching over Serenity Garden and beckoning residents to come and visit.

Plainview residents should see Serenity Garden as a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It’s also a place of remembrance and honor as the brick paths are engraved with family names, community organizations and businesses.

Residents are encouraged to honor a special occasion with a personalized commemorative brick that will last a lifetime. Chamber President Francesca Carlow said, “It’s a wonderful way to remember a special day or a special person. Stop by and walk around Serenity Garden and enjoy the sights and sounds. Spring is coming soon!”

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce invites businesses, organizations  and community residents to honor and remember their loved ones with a personalized brick. The chamber of commerce is planning a gala opening for Serenity Garden this summer to celebrate this new oasis.

With the personalized brick, you will always be a permanent part of Plainview-Old Bethpage and you will adorn Serenity Garden with your “remembrances of things past.”

Orders for personalized bricks must be placed no later than March 30. For more information, please contact Don Ingram at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
