The Bronx, the northernmost of New York City’s five boroughs, is home to not only 1.4 million people but also many landmarks—e.g., the prestigious Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Zoo, and the city’s largest park, the 2,765-acre Pelham Bay Park.
Founded in 1888, the park is more than three times the size of Manhattan’s Central Park (843 acres). Accessible from the 6 train, it is also home to the NYPD firing range.
Bicycle paths, throughout the park, lead all the way to City Island and to Orchard Beach, other popular sites in the Bronx. Nearby is the Bronx Equestrian Center, where you can learn to ride horses and ponies! Pelham Bay Park should be on everyone’s list when visiting the Bronx.
