Orchard Beach

Bronx, New York
Administrado por The Swim Guide

Orchard Beach is the Bronx's main public beach. It is situated on the western end of Long Island Sound and part of Pelham Bay Park, covering a mile and 115 acres. It is most recognized for its unique crescent shape and beautiful views of City Island. Once referred to as the "Riviera of New York," the park's hexagonal-block promenade is lined with food stores and specialty shops, two playgrounds, two picnic areas, a large parking lot, a central pavilion and 26 athletic courts for basketball, volleyball, and handball. Its 13-section sandy beach draws tens of thousands of families, swimmers, athletes and loungers on hot days. On cooler days, its shores make the perfect setting for relaxing strolls. It is tremendously crowded on the weekends, so if you're looking for a more peaceful experience come during the week. Admission is free, however parking is $6 on weekdays and $8 on weekends and holidays. This beach is operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
