Time Out says

Orchard Beach was created by Robert Moses in the 1930s: It's the Bronx's only public beach and spans 1.1 miles and 115 acres. Dining opportunities at Orchard Beach are limited—there are practically no restaurants, just concession stands. So make a day of it and pack a picnic lunch. The beach's 26 sporting courts are also popular—once your time on the sand is up, get into a game of handball.

This is a great place to come to get some fresh air, exercise, clear your head & get regrounded, chilly beautiful day in November, family makes it fun, not too old to play on the playground, be a kid ad again

The crowd gets rowdy later on in the afternoon so get there early so u can leave by 3. The beach itself is pretty ok. The water on the other hand is dirrrrty. Trash literally swims past u onto the shore. Further down towards the right it's a lil more "cleaner" that's all I can say bout that. But the kids did have fun. So it was an ok day.

Orchard Beach has come a long way from what it used to be now it is a safe, clean & just a great beach to visit. After sunbathing, you can visit City Island to get a bite to eat.  I love Orchard Beach & I love The Bronx but check it out for yourself.
