Pelham Bay Park

In the city that loves going green, Pelham Bay Park reigns as the largest of its parks. Not only is it home to Turtle Cove Golf Complex and The Bronx Equestrian Center, it offers a myriad of activities that are guaranteed to delight and educate kids and adults alike. From storytelling to basketball to family fitness, from scavenger hunts to juggling and even a puppet theater, Pelham Bay is an outdoor paradise. These verdant pastures are also steeped in history. The Pelham Bay Park Historical Trail will take you to Turtle Cove, where a combined British-Hessian force of 4,000 landed in October of 1776; and remains of the walls behind which the Americans fought off these forces can still be seen in the Split Rock Golf Course. The park also boasts the only public beach in all of the Bronx, Orchard Beach, which was created through the efforts of Robert Moses. Whether it’s nature, animals, sports, or history you’re after, Pelham Bay Park has it all under the sun.
