  • One of the most friendly community spaces in New York City. Child friendly and beautiful views of the East River. Sculpture and site-based outdoor art available year round and changing often. Farmers market and great coffee available most weekends spring to late fall. free programs for kids and adults, movie nights all summer long and grass and trees - what could be better.
  • It's cool, but without that "wow" experience. Definitely thought that there will be more stuff to see. Maybe in the spring time it will look nicer. Overall it's good for a quick trip.
  • Free movie nights, dig the diverse crowd. Best times to come are 2 hours before it closes during the week. So peaceful and quiet. Nice place to unwind. Isolated which keeps it quiet, but need a bike/car to get there. I saw there is a bus but have not tried it.
  • Its ok good view of the city,ok sculpture it close to Costco like a block walk .dont need to be a member to eat thier
  • Best park in the city, tucked into a little corner of LIC. Right on the water, with great pieces of art, it feels like you are in the country. You can bring dogs early and late in the day. They also have a farmers market pop up in the summer. Good to check it out for locally grown goods.
