Flushing Meadows Corona Park is a wonderful place to visit especially during spring and summer. There's lots top do, you could go for a bike ride, a jog or even a canoe ride. If that's not your thing you could set up for a game of soccer or touch football. You could visit the museum, visit the site of the world's fair or just chill and watch people go by. There are certain spots ideal for grilling. There are many hidden treasures in the park, I always have fun when I'm there.
Large park with plenty of sites to see, including the globe, science museum (great for kids), lake, and old World Fair buildings, to name a few. The World Fair building are usually closed to the public, but they do open from time to time for such events as Open House New York. Plenty of lawns for picnics and playing sports. Direct access (short walk) from the 7 train. Make sure to stop by the observation towers featured in the first Men in Black movie!
The place is huge and great, right next by is the NY hall of science as well. In addition, there is a event here that takes place called the maker fair which basically includes people showing off their talent or advertising their products. Several famous people attend it as well, Adam savage, the backyard scientist, and many more. You should definitely visit it
Day and I saw Paul Simon's final performance at Corona Park this summer. This was pretty cool given his song "Me and Julio down by the schoolyard," and the lyrics... "And I'm on my way I don't know where I'm going I'm on my way I'm taking my time But I don't know where Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona." Anyhow, Corona Park was pretty fantastic, and nostalgic, it's iconic.
It's brings back old memories of when I was much younger! It's the place of many exciting event's. Like the Worlds fair in (1939) & (1964) also (1965) Awesomeness! Also the place where The Ford Mustang made it's World debut. How about all that history. 😜
