Kings Point Park is a 175-acre park on the north of the peninsula, with over five miles of hiking trails. Situated between Steamboat and Redbrook Roads, the park was leased to the Great Neck Park District in 1938, yet it was just a swamp area at the time.

The Park District developed the park into a beautiful forest, preserve, and recreational facility with 26 picnic areas, baseball diamonds, and tennis courts. The park is also home to horseshoe pitches, a sled hill, and cross-country skiing trails. The hiking trails feature wooden bridges which cross over Mitchells Creek, as well as remnants of historic homes and structures.
