What data is stored in this database?
This database is a maintained, promotional directory for all of the parks located on Long Island. Besides the parks location and an image, we also are working on building content to include: park managers, amenities, descriptions, and nearby locations. We've been compiling information from various sources, and have found no one source has a complete set of information.
Why are there two promotional directories?
Our databases are relational, with a many-to-many relationship: Parks is related to the Things To Do Directory. This means that anyone searching for a park will find those environmental organizations that frequent that park more than once a year. Park advocates will discover a base of support, whether the need is for weed pulls, citizen science, coalition building, etc.
Will you have a relational database to promote events?
No, not at this time. It's cost prohibitive. To maintain up to date listings of every park event is too time consuming. Instead, we will most likely be offering banner ads, and will provide additional services to help organizations reach a wider audience.
How does our database surpass other Parks directories?
Our geographic focus is Long Island, including Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties. Quality Parks has been a part of this community for more than twenty years, is respected for its honesty, integrity, and transparency, and is well suited for validating listings and their content.
Is the database easy to search?

Where is the data stored?
