The park also boasts outdoor tennis, a track, a bandstand, multiple trails, basketball courts, playgrounds, and year-round events. Sitting on the edge of the East River, between the Triborough/RFK Bridge and Hell Gate Bridge, and in the path of The Atlantic Flyway, the park offers beautiful sights and sounds that make the benches along its perimeter popular spots year-round.
