Safety Town Educational Facility

The Town of Brookhaven Wildlife and Ecology Center Safety Town is a replica of a miniature village with an indoor educational facility (PDF). At Safety Town, schoolchildren will be instructed in pedestrian and bicycle safety, first in the classroom, then through a “hands-on” experience using bicycles and miniature electric vehicles in the adjacent village. Based on a 10-year analysis of bike accidents in Nassau County, it was determined that a Safety Town-graduate was more than 10 times less likely to be involved in a bike accident than a child who did not receive training at Safety Town.
