The neighborhood, nestled between Bronx Park and Crotona Park, is full of neighborly interaction. Community gardens abound and baseball diamonds are packed on the weekends. Stretch yourself out in a yoga studio then unwind with a cold pint in the Bronx’s first beer garden.
Tremont’s a short distance from the cultural powerhouses of the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Gardens, but it’s home to some impressive nature of its own. Crotona Park, named after the Greek city of Croton, prized for its Olympic athletes is famous for its three-acre Indian Lake, home to fish, turtles, and ducks, its twenty-eight different tree species, and the largest pool in the Bronx. Bronx Urban Park Rangers organize tours of the grounds as an outdoor learning laboratory. Add eleven playgrounds, five baseball diamonds, and twenty tennis courts that host the annual Bronx Pro Tennis Classic, and you’ve got yourself a recreational paradise.
Also, $5 million of renovations have transformed Tremont Park into the coolest place for kids to play. The 15-acre park on East Tremont Avenue features two brand new playgrounds, with improved running tracks, baseball diamonds and handball courts. It also features brand new benches, foliage, and wheelchair accessible benches.
Tremont’s main commercial marketplace is East Tremont Avenue, where cultures from around the world provide a variety of goods to suit your every need. Some say the best Italian food in the city is in Tremont, with excellent Puerto Rican, Mexican, and Caribbean cuisine as well.
Tremont’s commuters enjoy fast rides to Manhattan. The Metro-North Railroad gets you to Midtown in twenty minutes, the Express bus gets you there in thirty. The B, D, 2 and 5 subway trains provide easy access to all parts of the city.
