Getting to the Roberto Clemente State Park
By MetroNorth from Grand Central or 125th St:
MetroNorth to the Morris Heights stop (16 minutes out of Grand Central) is the easiest way to get to us. The train station borders the park, and exiting up the stairs you’ll find yourself in front of the main park building.
From the 4 train to Burnside Ave:
Exit at the Burnside Ave. station and then take either the Bx40 or Bx42 bus west to the park. It should be a very short bus ride. If you want to walk from the subway, walk south on Jerome Ave. to W. Tremont. Take a right on W. Tremont and follow it all the way to Sedgewick, where it turns into a step-street for the last block before it crosses over the Major Deegan highway and head into the park. If the stairs are closed, take a left onto Sedgwick, a right onto Cedar, and a left onto the bridge over the Deegan. (The buses run on W. Burnside, so you could also walk over on that, south on MLK/University, pick up W. Burnside again, and take W. Tremont into the park.)
From Upper Manhattan:
Cross the Harlem River on either the University Heights/207th Street bridge or the Washington Bridge. Walk south or north, respectively, on Sedgewick Ave or Cedar. Pick up Cedar St. Cross the Major Deegan on W. Tremont into the Park. If you take the Washington Bridge you can also pick up the Bx18 Bus.
Please note: Only street parking is available. We are located just off the Major Deegan, south of the West Fordham Road Exit. If you are coming from the Major Deegan, get off at the West Fordham Road exit. Do not cross the river into Manhattan! From West Fordham Road, turn south onto Sedgewick Ave. Follow Sedgewick to where it intersects with Cedar and turn right onto Cedar. As you drive down the hill, you will see West Tremont where it crosses the Deegan into the park. Park on the street before or after the Deegan overpass at West Tremont.
Getting to the Rowing Site
Once you are in the park and situated next to the main park building, take the stairs on your RIGHT down into the park. Walk north along the river and down the path, pass the baseball diamonds, and head for the red shipping containers at the very end of the path. The river will be on your left as you walk.
