New York City's largest park, there are plenty of ecosystems, recreation opportunities, golf courses, multiple access points, different cities. It truly is a wonder that could take years to fully appreciate.

The Orchard Beach was our stop before City Island. We went there for the first time and I think the last time. This beach is long, I believe with 8 section. There is a long promenade, a mile walkway, with many food carts and and beer carts. It is a public beach and I guess the whole Bronx goes there.... More

I'd been here when passing through to go to City Island. It is listed as NYC's largest park but compared to other city parks, it is located at the fringe of the city at the Northeastern most part of the Bronx on the Westchester border. It contains Orchard Beach, a golf driving range, several bike paths and is proximate to... More

The beach has life guards in the summer. We paid to park in the lot by the beach because the other free lots were full. It was a sunny Sunday... More

It's a toss-up. I'm nearer Orchard Beach than the nicer Long Island beaches, so I've been here more than a few times. I certainly wouldn't call it clean, but it's okay for a beach fix. If you're just looking to stick your feet in the water and sit on the sand, it's fine for a weekday. Being only a half... More

Pelham Bay Park is the biggest park in NYC. The park has something for everyone. It is also accessed easily by public transportation, car, bike, etc. As with some other reviews, the park can become messy in the hotter days due to the pigs who visit the park and leave the garbage around. If you want to avoid the filth.... More

One of the nicest park in NYC. The park offers plenty of BBQ areas, has a track to work out. There's a children's park where children get to play and explore.
