The residential hamlet of Deer Park is nestled in the northwest corner of the town of Babylon, originally named for the abundance of deer in this area. Rooted in farming and dahlia cultivation, the area quickly blossomed into a suburban haven. Deer Park was a favorite summer destination for President John Quincy Adams, and one of the area schools bears his name and is located on his former estate. Comedian and nightclub owner Rodney Dangerfield was born and raised in Deer Park. Many politicians, musicians, artists, performers, and celebrities continue to frequent Deer Park. Beautiful homes add an exclusive touch to modern shopping facilities, excellent schools, outstanding recreational amenities, and first-rate dining experiences for a truly elegant and enjoyable lifestyle.
