  • Photo of Orchard Beach Bathhouse Pavillion
The Orchard Beach Bathhouse in Pelham Bay Park was built during the Great Depression and is a designated historic landmark. It was built using concrete, brick, limestone and glazed terra cotta, however it has fallen into disrepair over the years. In recent years, Tropical Storm Irene and Superstorm Sandy flooded the pavilion and left four feet of sand inside. A Master Plan addressing the failing conditions of the building and surrounding site is being developed.
