Local Civic To Discuss Future of Bavarian Inn

Fate of shuttered Lake Ronkonkoma establishment to be discussed at Nesconset Library today.

The Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association has organized a meeting at the Nesconset Public Library tonight to discuss the future of the property once occupied by the Bavarian Inn, a celebrated lakeside restaurant in Lake Ronkonkoma.

The meeting will take place at the library at 6:30 tonight, and will discuss Suffolk County's proposal to turn the property into a park in a move that will join the Walter S. Commerdinger Jr. Park with the Lake Ronkonkoma County Park.

As the county seeks to move forward with the property, restoring it to parkland similar to Commerdinger Park and the 90-acre Lilly Pond Park, the Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association would like to have their input taken into account.

Suffolk County Legislator John Kennedy will be in attendance at the meeting as well as Nesconset-Sachem Civic President Fred Gorman. According to the organization's event flyer, life-long residents Paul Albert and Mike Fallacara of the Walter S. Commerdinger Jr. Preservation Society, Inc, will present a slide show and update attendees on the parks, which includes recruiting volunteers for the Bavarian Inn project.

About time our elected officials from the 2 towns and the county did something with that eyesore. Such a beautiful lake.

"The Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association has organized a meeting..." And the Bavarian Inn is such a beautiful place. Shame. http://s230.beta.photobucket.com/user/CurlyQLink1/media/ronkonkomashores.jpg.html

Make a park out of the property. Nature is trying to reclaim the property anyway with the flooding issue the business had.

I remember as a child going to this restaurant. At one point in time it was a really nice place to go to with the family. Such a shame what has happened to it. I too believe a park should be made out of the property and the restaurant moved somewhere else.

The surrounding trailer homes, low income housing make this a park I would not want to go to. Theres several parks within walking distance of there, always empty. What good would another do? I agree something should be done, but another park in the worst part of that area, really? How about a police substation?

Why another park? There are parks no one goes to now. How about we take the building down and let nature reclaim the space? That has no extra cost(building and surrounding area needs to be removed no matter what), and is good for the environment.
