We like the bike path here. It is a beautiful ride with some spectacular views. There are many "things to do". You can walk, run, bike,hike, picnic, swim and sunbathe. 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 in June so it was crowded. We have been here on weekdays and it is not crowded. I think the fall, winter and spring are really nicer times to visit. If you are a tourist and want to see more than Manhattan, the Bronx and this park are very much worth a visit. Nearby is the fabulous Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Gardens. You can travel here by public transportation. For lunch or dinner, I'd recommend eating at nearby City Island or on Arthur Avenue.
