The Deer Park Station building has been renovated and is now open.
Deer Park Station is on the Ronkonkoma Branch, where it serves approximately 6,200 customers each weekday. By April 2019 the completed improvements to this station include platform renewal, Wi-Fi, USB charging stations, digital information totems and interior and exterior building renovations. The area surrounding the station is being rehabilitated with sidewalk and curb improvements, new bike racks and public art.
William Low’s “Deer Park Dahlias” (2018) has been installed at Deer Park Station. 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.
