Flushing Meadows Corona Park, New York City Reviews
The large Meandering Park period with a lot of options. Located near Shea Stadium and the Billie Jean King United States Tennis Center this location is distant but interesting. Not necessarily in your typical Park in the sense that a lot of a lot of it is large Open Spaces without many trees. But there are a lot of good sporting field options. The Queens museum is also located here. And the Hall of Science is on the edge. It's worth it look over the map before you head over because it is a bit of a strange part but nice nonetheless.
The park is lovely. I gave 4 stars because it is not the best place for a concert. The line of sight to the stage was blocked in the area we sat and we could only see what was happening onstage by looking at the large screens. I will definitely go back just to throw a ball around and hang out.
Love to go here with my grandsons. Easy walk from their home. Went to the Queens Zoo and Petting Park while we were there. Absolutely lovely day. Go, enjoy.
Going to Corona Park feels like you're going back in time. The architecture is great. We went to Paul Simon's last concert there and it was hard to see... yet we're glad we went!
Nice big park. It is good for everybody that wants to have a relax day. You can bike, walk or just sit on a bench and have a fun day. They have accessible restrooms. Also the Queens Zoo is located there.
