Visitor Tips and News About Grumman Memorial Park
Grumman Memorial Park
When The Grumman Corporation left Long Island, it left behind a large parcel of land in Calverton when it once tested fighter jets for the Navy. The future of the airport and grounds is still being debated, but a one-acre parcel has been set aside (with plans for expansion) as a memorial to the work done there. There are two large fighter jets that visitors can examine (including an F-14) as well as some smaller artifacts.[Glenn H, 08/05/2014]
