Far Rockaway - Bayswater Point State Park

1479 Point Breeze place

Bayswater Point State Park comprises 12 acres at the tip of a peninsula in the Rockaways that juts out into the Mott Basin on the eastern shore of Jamaica Bay. The terrain is varied and includes beachfront, wetlands and woodlands. This diversity helps make it an ideal habitat for migrating and nesting birds. The goal of this park is to preserve the existing natural systems, and if feasible, restore what has been lost. Passive recreation, such as hiking and nature study, are encouraged.


Prohibited in all parks and facilities.

I love the scenery and the tennis courts just a great place to hang out the issue is the tennis courts don't get maintenance that often the issues with them are minor one of them the net is a little ripped and the paint is very faded

This park is very quiet. Not many visitors. But you can see airplanes landing on the right hand side of the park.

A great place to sit and watch the water. Trees for shade and also sun. Lots of nature to enjoy. You are right at the end of a small peninsula, able to walk down to the water's edge. May see ducks, swans other birds. Can feed seed to the birds if you bring it. Quiet and peaceful place for family outing or for contemplation alone.
