Bayswater Point State Park comprises 17 acres at the tip of the peninsula in the Rockaways that juts out into the Mott Basin on the eastern shore of Jamaica Bay. The terrain is varied, including beach, wetland and woodlands. The trees, other vegetation and organic life make the park an ideal habitat for migrating and nesting birds. The goal of the park is to preserve the existing natural systems and restore, if feasible, what has been lost. Passive recreation, such as hiking and nature study, are compatible uses for the property. In addition, education programs are in place that make use of the park as an outdoor classroom and laboratory for all ages. Bayswater Point is managed by the New York City Audubon Society, under a formal agreement with State Parks.
