Paddle past islands, along shorelines, and through lagoons for beautiful views of Long Island Sound. Pelham Bay Park is a primary feature in the Bronx. It is New York City’s largest park and is more than three times bigger than Central Park in Manhattan. Most people know Pelham Bay Park for its gorgeous Long Island Sound shoreline and popular Orchard Beach. Others come to play golf on two courses or to use the playgrounds, bridle paths, and ball fields. What some people don’t know is that Pelham Bay Park is a favorite among the local paddling crowd. It offers a scenic launch on a protected lagoon with easy access to Long Island Sound.
