Fort Totten Park
422 Weaver Ave, Bayside, NY 11359
Fort Totten Park is actually a preserved Civil War fortress that became a working U.S. Army installation and now provides space for the United States Army Reserve. With over 60 acres, the area has large fields, dilapidated houses, an old officers’ club, a sports complex, and a public swimming pool. Patrons can take canoes into the Long Island Sound, explore a fortress, observe migrating birds or play soccer. The park is also a frequent host to special events, and on Halloween, Rangers allow individuals to get spooked at a haunted house in the old water battery.
