Safe, friendly environment. The bathrooms were relatively clean and accessible. You may have to hike if your group is setup away from the parking lot. They can definitely use more parking or relax the rules for parking on the street, on the weekends.

The Park is great for walks. From the middle of the north end of the parking lot of Ocean Beach you find the trail. It trails the bay and shore. In the afternoon of a weekday I met less than 10 people during my 2 mile walk. Couldn't find a suitable map or guide of trail, but using the app... More

Alot of families having picnics on the Weekends! Get there early if your going to have a large gathering! Street parking available, restrooms limited, wheelchair accessible. #6 train, small distance from the park. They have a large baseball field. Walking track and play ground.

Take the 6 Local subway out to the end of the line - you won't be disappointed! Wonderful open green space stretching for miles. Areas for tennis, baseball etc and picnic areas and designated BBQ zones as well (with BBQ ovens provided). Very peaceful mid-week, probably v v popular with the locals at weekends - and so it should be!... More

I go to play baseball, its very convenient since there is places for the family to stay if they don't want to play or watch you play. Kids go wild and crazy with all the space.

The entire park area is massive, so there should be something in the area for nearly eeryone. There's Orchard Beach, lots of great playgrounds for the kids, green space to hang out in, picnic areas with grills and picnic tables, and probably more I don't know about, since that's all I saw of the park. Definitely worth checking out if... More

That's what the cab drivers always say when they arrive at the green oasis that is very much the Bronx. Acres of trails that line the Long Island Sound and feature many of the birds that call this sanctuary home. Biking, picnicking, roller blading, swimming at the beach or enjoying the concerts... If you live in New York City or... More
