  • The Flushing Meadows Corona Park is located in Queens in NYC and be away from Manhattan is not known. I was lucky to stay on the Corona Station Park and I got to know well the Meadows Corona. Is a very large space, where is located an International Tennis Stadium. and its main landmark the Unisphere, which is a huge globe made of steel, built in 1964 to receive a world's fair. There in space for soccer, picnic area, however, is not well taken care of. Noticed that the population that more frequent are Hispanics and Asians. Has a monument honoring the passing of the Pope in NYC, Queens, There is also the the U.S. Open tennis tournament takes place in late August and early September, where brings together the best players in the sport to compete in the American title, one of the main world circuit of ATP – Association of tennis professionals. To know the Park would be good estimate at least 4 hours.

  • A must for lovers of tennis who visit NY-especially during the month of August, the date of the US OPEN. Very beautiful place and well organized.

  • Great Park for walks and rest. It has a sculpture of the giant world that is surrounded by water during the day dancing. Very good place.

  • This place was great back in late 1990 early 2000 but the last few years the quality has declined and enforcement of illegal grilling pose a hazard to families and children. They have added rides and small amusement to the carousel area which is nice but it has definitely lost its appeal.
  • my wife and i love this place as it's near our home. we also had some of our pre wedding pictures taken at the fountain and globe. very open space, not that crowded and there's a museum right next to the globe as well. love taking walks around here.
  • A nice park that's filled with various outdoor activities and events. The Arthur Ash stadium can be seen near the globe and where all the tennis courts can be accessed. There's also a ice skating, pitch n' putt, swimming pool, and the Queens museum. Many people go there to do barbecues as well.
  • I love this place because of the natural beauty of mother nature and the animals surrounding in the lakes. It's a pretty big park, you can bike ride the whole place in one day, like my self. No pools are open here but the globe dome has water you can get wet inside of- I don't like when people let go of their animals inside loosely to take photos. It's dangerous for kids or adult to get bit. It has museums inside the park, boat house, bike rentals, 2 lakes I believe- I don't think you can fish in them- areas to play soccer, and kids location to play as well. No barbecuing allowed in the park. Enjoy
  • An historic and wonderful park. 4 stars because of its condition. The city and local communities should do much more to maintain it and return it to its former glory. the fields are worn out, the fountains are dry, and the landscaping aside from the area around the Unisphere and the Tennis Center is shabby. But it is VERY well used and loved. It offers a great opportunity to walk, take in arts and recreational opportunities. The ice skating center and worth a trip as well. I would recommend this as a regular park to Queens residents and it is worth a trip to anyone looking for some out of the way NYC tourism. To get here, take the 7 train to Mets Stadium.
