New Rochelle boasts almost 230 acres of park-land, more than 40 parks and playgrounds and 9.3 miles of shoreline along the Long Island Sound. Its variety of parks feature walking and riding paths in the woods, open fields and water views. There are pools, tennis courts and community centers located throughout the City, and the City Marina has space for 450 boats and mooring for boats 18' and over.
Lavish shore clubs dot the architecturally impressive Davenport Neck Peninsula. Echo Bay winds push sailboats and yachts from their slips and moorings.
New Rochelle’s rich cultural heritage, substantial, residential neighborhoods, innovative recreational programs, the New Roc City entertainment complex, ethnic diversity and picturesque setting along Long Island Sound, make it a most desirable community today.
