Staten Island parks with barbecuing areas

Wolfe's Pond Park

  • Free

Find refuge at the beach or wildlife preserve, or get in touch with your inner child on a tire swing. The barbecue site is well stocked with ten grills, but if there's a wait you could always hit the sand on the beach before you start the cook-up.

  1. Enter at Holten Ave and Hylan Blvd

Clove Lakes Park

  • Free

This is an impossibly authentic country experience that's just a ferry ride away from Manhattan. But it's a hike to get there, especially when lugging raw meat and your 54-quart Coleman cooler. At least you don't need to haul a grill too; there are six to choose from.

  1. Enter at Victory Blvd and Clove Rd

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."
