Grumman Memorial Park
Route 25 near the Route 25A intersection
Calverton, New York 11933
Voice: 888-4-GRUMMAN

Grumman Memorial Park is a volunteer effort paying tribute to the incredible advances in aviation and aerospace that took place on Long Island, thanks to the teamwork of the employees of Grumman Corporation. This dedicated group of people took aviation from the flight deck of a Navy carrier to man's first steps on the moon.

Grumman Memorial Park is situated on a one-acre site (with an additional nine acres of land for expansion) on the former Grumman Aerospace Flight Test Facility (Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant) in Calverton, Long Island, New York. The Park is due east of the 10,000-foot runway.

The centerpiece of Grumman Memorial Park is an F-14A Tomcat built by Grumman at Calverton, with its wings swept back, and perched on a specially designed pedestal aimed towards the sky. The Walk of Honor, with inscribed bricks, is beneath the aircraft surrounded by a manicured lawn with plants. Other genuine Grumman artifacts include a guard booth from Bethpage that houses the computer for locating bricks, and the flagpole that once stood before nearby Plant 7. This project will be accomplished in phases, with the first phase having been completed in October 2000. A Visitors Center with displays of other Grumman memorabilia is slated for Phase Two.
