It'll take just a moment of gazing at the Long Island Sound in a reclined position to adjust your manic urban self to the stillness of the city's largest park. Unfortunately, you're not the only one with that idea. Arrive at 10am to lay claim to one of the 20 grills in the north picnic area or ten in the south.

  1. North picnic area, enter at Wilkinson Ave and Bruckner Blvd; south picnic area, enter at Middletown Rd and Stadium Ave

I really don't think it's fair that the only place you can enjoy a family BBQ is north of 145 street what happenedto the family that live below 145st... that rule really sucks and its not fair..

LaBelleVie- it is Riverside park that they are referring to. Riverbank state park has an entry at 145th street and goes downtown to 137th street while Riverside park is the park that starts at 145th street and goes uptown. ( you can get to Riverside park via Riverbank park by taking some stairs down)http://www.nycgovparks.org/facilities/barbecue

great info however, the parks and recreations website states "May I hold my event on a major holiday weekend (Memorial Day, Independence Day, or Labor Day)? No, we are not able to issue permits for major holiday weekends, as we keep spaces clear for public use on a first-come, first-served basis on those days."
