Thomas Jefferson Park is one of the best kept secrets of East Harlem. Situated against the East River and featuring plenty of shade, this little gem will keep your summer filled with outdoor activities. It is one of the only parks on the island to feature a free-to-use full-size soccer field and track. It has basketball courts, baseball courts, a workout area for pull-ups / sit-ups / calisthenics. Also has a pool, BBQ pits, benches, tables, and of course a playground for the little ones. Seriously, you can’t ask for more in a public park.
