Did you think Manhattan’s Central Park was the biggest park in NYC? Many people do. However, Pelham Bay Park is more than three times the size of Central Park. Hugging the Long Island Sound, the picturesque park features shoreline, bridal paths, hiking trails, and golf courses. Families favor the picnic areas, and children adore the playgrounds. Athletes break a sweat the track, tennis courts, bike paths, and playing fields. Birdwatchers flock to the wildlife sanctuary, where majestic herons and egrets are thrilling sights! Overlooking the park is the Bartow-Pell Mansion, a magnificent estate and a national historic landmark that is open to public tours for a small fee.Featuring fascinating landmarks and neighborly residents, the Bronx has a reputation as the friendliest NYC borough. So if you already live here, take pride in your social status. For those of you seeking to relocate, the Bronx warmly welcomes you!
