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