Directions via Google Maps

Do you like long walks by the water? Picnicking in summertime and sledding in the winter?  We have the perfect match for you!  No, this isn't a personal ad; it's Owl's Head Park.  The spacious property contains rolling hills, peaceful, meandering pathways, and breathtaking views of the New York skyline and striking Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

Once you fall for its aesthetics, settle in and explore its more active attractions.  Basketball courts, a playground area, a spray pool, and a popular skate park fall within its borders.  Four-legged visitors voice (well, bark) their approval of the 150-foot long by 40-foot wide dog run where they can romp and run with fellow canines.

No matter your mood, Owl's Head Park is an ideal destination. Come reconnect with nature and get away from the everyday grind on this hilltop patio.
