The First Day of Spring is March 19! Visit These Local Parks For The Season

After a long winter, we can’t wait for spring – and since the first day of the season is coming up on Thursday, March 19, we don’t have to wait for much longer! Soon, you can wipe out that cabin fever and get outside for some biking, hiking, walking and exploring.

One of the best parts of the springtime is wandering some of the parks near our Sagamore apartments and taking in the fresh air, whether you decide to go for a breather alone, with the whole family or just with Fido for an afternoon out. If this sounds good to you, check out these parks near your Sagamore apartment!

Theodore Roosevelt Park, located at 200 Central Park West, New York which is a five minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a park surrounding the American Museum of Natural History with paths, grassy areas and a dog run.

Theodore Roosevelt Park serves as a place of relaxation and delight for neighbors and tourists, including the approximately five million people who visit the Museum each year. And thanks to the flowers that now bloom from early spring through late fall, they are now also home to a population of hummingbirds!

Central Park, located between the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side which is an eight minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a sprawling park with pedestrian paths and ballfields, plus a zoo, carousel, boat rentals and a reservoir.

Since day one, Central Park has been the city dweller’s backyard: a lush and wide-open retreat from the swarming cityscape just beyond its perimeter. With 840 acres, it’s also the city’s fifth largest park by area.
