A lovely park located between Gillette and Candee Avenues in Sayville, NY 11782


Many people have asked to have their wedding at The Common Ground - and it is a beautiful place for a wedding or a Private Affair. Since The Common Ground is a public park owned by the Town of Islip, there are only a few things you need to do in order to reserve this lovely haven.

1. Set a date.

2. Email The Common Ground at contactus@thecommonground.com in order to make certain that the park is not occupied during your event. We will promptly let you know if the park is available on your selected date.

3. The Town of Islip must approve the request. Write a letter to the Town of Islip requesting the date you have chosen and mail it to:

Commissioner of Parks
Brookwood Hall
50 Irish Lane
East Islip NY 11730

Or call: (631) 224-5411

4. It is your responsibility to arrange for chairs, music, flowers, decorating and the like.  You may not nail, tack or staple anything into any part of the pavilion (please use the loops that exist on the perimeter of the pavilion roof to hang decorations).

5. You are responsible for cleaning up decorations and anything else left by your event.

You may purchase an engraved paving stone to commemorate the date for $65.  (Call The Common Ground at 631-459-6603 and ask to have a volunteer return your call about a brick order.)
