Van Cortlandt Park

Broadway and Jerome Ave.
Bronx, NY 10467


This sprawling 1,146-acre park in the Bronx is the third-largest park in the City and boasts the nation's first public golf course. The Van Cortlandt Golf Course, which opened in 1895, offers rolling hills, well-placed water and trees and a 600-yard-plus hole that will challenge any seasoned pro. Van Cortlandt Park is also home to the nine-hole Mosholu Golf Course, which opened in 1914. In addition to golf, the park offers (naturally) tons of green space ideal for picnics, sports fields for the athletic and playgrounds for kids and the young at heart.
