Word on the Street
Whether you are walking from home, driving, or taking the #6 train, Pelham Bay Park offers many opportunities for family fun. Did you know that Pelham Bay Park is almost 3000 acres making it much larger than Central Park? Pelham Bay Bark includes Orchard Beach, Split Rock Golf Course, and the Bartow-Pell Manision. Hiking, bike riding and nature programs are a few of activities enjoyed at the park. One of the great attractions enjoyed by children is the Playground for all Children. It is one of a group of playgrounds throughout the city that enable children of all needs to enjoy a park. Swings for children of all abilities, colorful equipment, and low handrails allow children with crutches or a wheelchair to enjoy the park too. There are also Braille signs and textured pavement. One unique feature is the musical walkway. There is a xylophone on the ground. Children can stamp on the bell pads to create their own music. In addition to enjoyable equipment, there is also a sprinkler system. There are many shaded areas too. If you and your youngsters are early birds, the playground will be yours to enjoy. At that time, there will be few visitors. Keep in mind that during the summer months, the park can get very crowded on the weekends. Before a visit, take a look online to see if any special events are planned. Musical groups and the Urban Park Rangers plan many special programs for families to enjoy.
