Aside from other popular waterfront parks in the Bronx, Barretto Point Park is the most remote venue that was opened in 2006. Though located in the heavily industrial Bronx neighborhood, this place is a perfect destination for recreation and outdoor activities.
The park is placed on a picturesque waterfront of the East River with piers and cast lines for fishermen to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Boat and kayak launches are also available. The park has a playground and a basketball court that can be transformed into a volleyball pitch using a net that is free to use.
Barretto Point Park is a good place for both active people and visitors who are looking for a peaceful and relaxing time spending. Here yon can read a book under the blue sky or have a picnic with your friends and family. Take the advantage of the local pool to chill down during the hottest summer days.
