  • We bought some dumplings and sat and savored them in this area. Then we crossed the park and there were a lot of people.., some playing mahjong and others playing and singing Chinese music. It was a strange experience since no one seemed to sing.., I'd rather say they disated wanting to. They were having a good time and that's the important thing.

  • I got up early for breakfast at a little restaurant across the street and walked over to watch locals practice tai chi in the park. I’m always interested in how folks in the city spend their time. Nic...  more »
  • Columbus park is a nice place to come and relax in the Little Italy / Chinatown area, located a half block off of Canal Street. We visited in the evening and it was great to sit for 30 minutes- people...  more »

  • Happy Summer 19. Columbus Park is a NYC park, and it is maintained by the City of New York Park's Department. It is located in Chinatown, NYC, and situated behind the NYC Criminal Court on Baxter and Bayard Street. The park is kind of big for a NYC park, and it does have a basketball court, lawn for soccer matches, lots of benches in and outside the park, playground for the kids and toddlers with swings and other equipment. Then there tables and chairs also, some are chess tables and some are like picnic tables and long benches. Plenty of tress and bushes also. So breakfast and lunch in the park is great on beautiful NYC days. The folks that frequents the park are moms & kids, nanny & kids, kids from schools there for recess, folks playing basketball, folks playing soccer, Attorneys, District Attorneys, judges, Court Officers and Correction Officers. It is 1 of the safest park in NYC. However, It would be a great NYC park to enjoy except there is a bunch of middle age and elderly locals ( men and women) that occupies the park on a daily basis 365 days a year, and they occupied almost all the tables every day. What these folks do is play all sorts of card games and other table games all day long, and they just grab and hold the tables for their games. These folks also have some bad habits besides their bad manners, and I can not even name them for you except to say to they should stop their bad habits in a NYC park. The park does entertain tons of folks on a daily basis, and there are NYC Park's Department employees on hand throughout the day maintaining the park. However, the park always seems dirty and unkempt whenever I visited. The several public toilets in the park is real dirty and usually overflowing with some water from somewhere. Do visit the park if you are in the neighborhood, but remember to hit the bathrooms before you go. Enjoy.
  • A place where cohort and inter-generational groups may gather and share common history and cultural values. Sit and see how we are more alike than different. There is something to learn each time one takes to observe how we each get along.
  • You can tell that the gardener is the best gardener in all of new york city. The flowers are beautiful and planted just in time for the season. I am particularly a fan of the table tennis table. I play frequently. I enjoy the exercise and learning new skills from friends and strangers. It's a great environment near great food.
  • Downtown park for family. Great place to meet or bring kids to burn some energy. Has water sprinkler going in summer for cooling. Typical playground equipment in good shape, basketball game frequently in session. Parents will find plenty of seating after walking all over the city.
  • Nice place to play some sports. During summers they also have free Asian themed activities like Movies Under the Stars that's pretty cool. A rare sight here that is both funny and intriguing is "the man who eats their dragon fruit whole with the skin on."
