Best place to watch sports the Olympics forgot
Van Cortlandt Park
Thanks to the melting-pot neighborhoods nearby, kids can catch more international sports here than on ESPN2. Cheer for an Irish hurling team at Gaelic Park (located on the southwest corner of Van Cortlandt Park), become a bocce fan or try to understand cricket scoring (good luck!). If your tots would rather run around than watch, Van Cortlandt—our city's third largest park—also offers hiking trails, a swimming pool and a track.
