Time Out says

The 60-acre park, which boasts tennis courts, a track, walking trails, basketball courts and multiple playgrounds, is right on the East River. That means it has incredible views of the Manhattan skyline and the Triborough/RFK Bridge.

Aside from its pool being used in the 1936 and 1964 Olympics, it has a rich history. In its beginning, it was home to a Native American settlement, which fished from the waters of Hell Gate and harvest oysters and clams there, according to Untapped New York.

The park's land later became home to wealthy families like the Barclays, Potters, Woolseys, and Hoyts.
