Arverne By The Sea has its own pocket parks, complete with playground equipment for children to enjoy running, jumping, swinging and sliding. Families love the proximity of Arverne By The Sea to the Rockaway Boardwalk which is the longest boardwalk on the East Coast and is conveniently maintained by the NYC Parks Department.
The beach directly in front of Arverne By The Sea has a private feel, thanks to parking restrictions that favor locals. It is a wonderful place for children to spend time outdoors playing, running, building sandcastles, swimming, and even learning to surf, as the Arverne By The Sea beach is one of only two surf beaches in NYC!
Just a short walk down the Rockaway Boardwalk, kids have a world of exciting outdoor activities like playgrounds, basketball courts and handball walls – not to mention a skateboard park, surf beaches, and a roller hockey rink. Bike lanes make it easy for older children and teens to move along the shore and access the many shops, restaurants, and food stands along the way – and if they finish with all of that, there’s still the beach! Perfect for swimming, sunbathing and just plain lounging about, Rockaway Beach is a wonderful source of entertainment and fitness; lifeguards are provided by the NYC Parks Department.
Beyond Rockaway Beach, Arverne By The Sea is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Jacob Riis Park with swimming beaches, fishing beaches, and the famous art deco bathhouse – and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a wonderful place for spotting wildlife, kayaking, bird watching, and learning more about the local environment on ranger-led tours.
With so many wonderful opportunities for outdoor activities the whole family will love right in your own backyard, the many parks at Arverne By The Sea are just the beginning! To see the grounds for yourself, as well as the many nearby attractions, we invite you to visit the Arverne By The Sea sales office at 6306 Beach Front Road in Arverne, Queens.
