Eastchester

About the area

“It’s the kind of suburb that makes sense even when your life changes. It offers something for everyone, and where everything is convenient.” While Eastchester encompasses the villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville, those areas tend to have their own strong identities separate in many ways from the rest of the town. It is the unincorporated area of Eastchester that has a particularly broad range of housing. Eastchester’s richest gift to the public is the many opportunities it offers for sports and other recreational pursuits. The town has five mini-parks, including Mill Road Park on one-quarter of an acre, with a Victorian-style gazebo and benches, picnic tables and a small grassy play area. At the other end of the spectrum in terms of size and things to do is Lake Isle Park, which, besides five swimming pools, has an 18-hole golf course and six tennis courts. Parkway Oval, a 14-acre park in the village of Tuckahoe, has baseball and softball fields, soccer fields, an all-purpose play field and a basketball court. The park, which is run by the town, sits alongside a county-owned jogging and bicycle path along the Bronx River.
