The park is a great place to go, relax, and chill out away from the business of the city. They have a large grass area with a view of the Triboro Bridge. Many people lie there tanning for the afternoon or sit there after a swim in the Olympic-sized pool. The pool is a great facility and draws a lot of families. It is a very well maintained public pool. You only need to bring a combination lock with you to lock up your stuff. Very secure with a lot of staff around. There is also an outdoor track for the runners and joggers as well as tennis courts.
