Really Two Parks In Bayswater

Really Two Parks In Bayswater

In each issue of The Wave, during the past several weeks, there have been announcements of cultural activities taking place at Bayswater State Park.

That requires some clarification since the activities were actually scheduled to take place at Bayswater Michaelis Park, a twenty-seven acre facility operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation in Far Rockaway.  It is located on Beach Channel Drive, adjacent to Norton Basin at
Beach 32 Street. The Bayswater Point State Park, one of the very few state parks in Queens, is operated by the New York State Office of Parks,
Recreation and Historic Development.  It is an eleven-acre wildlife preserve located at the north end of Mott Avenue, also in Far Rockaway, along the South Shore of Jamaica Bay, and is used by the public for passive recreational activities such as birding, butterfly watching, and fishing.

Both sites, while quite different, are a credit to the Bayswater community
and well worth a visit.
