The neighborhood's namesake Soundview Park is located at the south end of the neighborhood, along the Bronx River. This large park covers 205 acres and includes jogging paths, terrific views of Manhattan, a cricket pitch, six basketball courts, playgrounds, a soccer field, a track, canoe/kayak launch sites, and a large lawn for performances.
Colgate Close Park includes playgrounds and spray showers for the kids, while Watson Gleason Playground also has basketball and handball courts. The Story Playground and Space Time Playground offer handball, basketball, fitness
equipment, and a playground. The waterfront-located Concrete Plant Park, which as the name implies was once the site of a concrete plant, links up to multi-use greenways and includes off-road and on-road pedestrian and cycling routes, while the Bronx River can be accessed via the kayak and canoe launch sites.
Nearby, you'll find Starlight Park, a reclaimed and expanded park across the pedestrian bridge at East 177th Street. Within its 13 acres, you'll find baseball and soccer fields, kayak and canoe launch sites, playgrounds and spray showers.
Bronx Park, just north of Soundview, is a terrific destination with dense forests, gardens, the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Garden, playgrounds, bicycle paths, ball fields, basketball and tennis courts, dog-friendly
areas, bocce courts, a skate park, food trucks, and more.
