A pleasant park

Pelham Bay Park has lots to offer. You can bbq & picnic (they provide grills & picnic tables), hike, there's a running track, baseball fields, football field, dog park, even jungle gyms and swings for the kids! In the summer, they provide sprinklers and they also have restrooms. The park is also close to Orchard Beach!!!

We visited especially coming from mid-Westchester---I think it's a good park for locals but not worth a special trip from elsewhere. We parked at the southern end & walked a lot but found it wasn't as rewarding as we were hoping for. There is a busy vehicle parkway which goes alongside it for sections & a big fenced-in landfill that... More

Pelham park is HUGE. Yesterday we set off to hike Kazimiroff Trail, which winds through Hunter Island, about a 1 mile loop hike. (this is all part of Pelham Bay Park) In order to access this gem we parked in the general parking lot at Orchard Beach (which was free since it’s off season). The Kazimiroff Trail head starts right... More

Nice tree-lined park in the Bronx, used by many people, and is a haven for the locals. It is not beautiful, nor especially quiet. Don't go after dark, as it might contain questionable characters. At Christmastime, the neighborhood is a must-see for Christmas decorations.

You don't have to go far from NYC to enjoy the Fall scenery. Everything about this park is amazing and nothing's changed from when I used to walk here when I lived in the Bronx. The ball field that my Dad took me to is still full of small kids with their families. The ride through the circle to the... More

This park brings me lots of memories when i was a kid and having the 6 train in front of it and several buses that go to the area beach and to City Island and to even the near by mall

This is a nice clean park for picnics. There is also a jogging track and baseball fields. I enjoy this park and come often with my kids. There is always a lot of activities going on such as soccer playing, kids riding their bikes, etc. It's a must go.

I love going here for early morning runs. Later in the day, it gets pretty crowded in the summer. During fall-spring, crowds are much more modest and scenery is often even better. I frequently see raccoons, skunks, deer, and sometimes wild turkeys. A gem of a park.

I took my small children to Pelham Bay Park to ride their bikes and play in the children's park. We also walked to the edge where the water is. My boy's had a wonderful time.
