Day in the park

Good place for the family to go and enjoy some good sun worshipping. Plenty of place to grill, kid section to run, play, and get wet.

I grew up a block away from the park, which is a haven for any outdoor adventure. You can walk for miles, or bike up to Orchard Beach or City Island.

Since i was a kid i always loved this park and as an adult i still love and it's very accesable via the 6 train and several buses in the area. I always go there once in a while and it reminds me as a child running around.

I know that this is the largest public park in NYC. I suggest it is a visit for a lazy day in the park. Usually pretty packed on the side of the New England with lots of families. Less by the track area. There is some food stands, but the best bet is to bring a picnic lunch or bar-b-que.... More

Pelham Bay Park is a hidden gem. It's nestled in the Bronx, near Orchid Beach, where you can have a great leisurely walk. It has ample parking with city tennis courts, track running field, softball field. picnicking areas and nature trails. Its a great all round ark, AND ITS FREE.

This park is actually larger than Central Park. Has a nice area to run in. Places to sit and people watch.
