Posted on September 21, 2013

Jackie Robinson Park runs from West 145th Street up to West 155th Street, between Bradhurst and Edgecombe Avenues. You can take a stroll through the tree-lined paths, go for a morning workout on the stairs towards Edgecombe, take your kids to the playground and catch awesome local music at the concert bandshell.

Open until Labor Day 11-3 and 4-7. Just bring your suit, flip flops, and towel. Wear white over your suit and you don't need a lock!  Otherwise, if you have stuff, make sure to bring a lock to use the lockers while you swim. If you miss it this year, they'll open again next summer after public schools close.
