If you’re looking for spectacular views, take a stroll in this expansive Bronx park. With one and a half miles of prime waterfront, Ferry Point Park offers unparalleled views of the East River, the Manhattan skyline, and of the Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges. If a great outlook isn’t enough, how about some sports? Ferry Point Park offers visitors vast playing fields for cricket, soccer and football. On the east side, you can find a basketball court to practice shooting hoops. Lucky for golf lovers, the park recently announced its plan to build a public world-class 18-hole golf course.
In addition to the state-of-the-art golf course, Ferry Point Park will include two parks. The Community Park Phase I was completed in October 2011 and includes a little league and a junior baseball field (to be opened Spring 2012), basketball courts, a play area for children and a pedestrian trail. A separate 20-acre waterfront promenade will convert undeveloped parkland into a passive ecologically responsible park. Phase 1 of the promenade project will include a picnic area, comfort station and views of the Long Island Sound, a multi-use path and the creation of a tidal wetland .
Get excited to spend long afternoons playing in the growing Ferry Point Park. With its expanding facilities, the park will truly be an asset to the Ferry Point Park community and citizens across New York City.
