Overview

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 (Queens, NY). 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.

Pets are not allowed
