Bayswater Point State Park is a state park located on Jamaica Bay in Queens, New York. Jamaica Bay is an attractive area for migratory birds; Bayswater Point State Park was established in order to preserve their habitat. The park comprises 12 acres (49,000 m2) at the western end of Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway and is largely built on land formerly belonging to the mansion of Louis A. Heinsheimer.

The park offers hiking, birdwatching, and fishing.

In May 2010, the park was closed to the public as a result of budget cuts.[1]
