Croton Point Park lies on a 508-acre peninsula jutting out into the Hudson – and trust us, it really sticks out. The expansive grounds offer a full menu for your summer interests: hiking, swimming, playing frisbee, basking in the sun, resting in the shade and, of course, picnicking.
More than just a picnic site, Croton Point Park also has a beach where swimming is open from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from May 28 through Sept. 4, as well as on May 30, July 4 and Sept. 5.
