  • The park is very easy to reach, it is by Pelham bay train station. Lots of nature and sounds of nature which makes it relaxing and joyful. It gets crowded when holidays are by or weekends. Lot's of people have picnics and kids parties. The bad of this is that some people don't clean up and leave disaster and disappointment.
  • It's a very small put open park which attracts many pet owners. They have exhibits in the park that make you wonder what's going on. The park is okay it's just a little to small and not very accommodating. I found it interesting that pet owners had there dogs drinking from the same fountain as humans but then again I do not advise anyone is a park let along a park named Park Dog Run drink from the water fountain. There is no replay value here unless you have a pet or a blanket and book to read.
  • Every year Success Academy Bronx 4 has their Field Day at this Park. It is always an amazing time with students and their families. However, this year the grass was way too high. I feel like the Parks Department knew that there was going to be a large group coming they could have cut the grass. We were not the only school that was attending the park for a Field Day.
  • The beach was absolutely beautiful and not too packed. Most people we passed by at least waved, if they didn't strike up conversation. A great location for a day out with the family.
  • Every body's very nice they have grill's u can use just bring your own charcoal, they also have baseball fields and that's just the area I was at i didn't investigate I'm sure they have other aminetys. Have fun

Where to stay in Bronx

The Bronx is home to a number of mid-range hotels, bed and breakfasts, and inns. As is the case anywhere in the city, eager sightseers should look for something close to a subway station for easy access to the city’s many attractions. However, you should be aware that these areas often get busy and noisy in the morning with commuters. A vacation rental provides a home away from home and plenty of amenities, and many are located in residential neighborhoods that will help you get off the tourist trail.
