  • Impressions of the men in Black Film. In the winter, the Park is almost empty. Queen Museum is open but not highly recommended... Park is very beautiful stages, many wild geese and views to the div. Good with the subway can be reached

  • This huge globe is probably the only thing in the big park which is interesting. Even the fountains were not operational when we went there. The park otherwise is huge like they generally are in USA. ...  more »
  • This park was a pleasant surprise! I went there to run the Queens Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving, and hung around a while to soak the atmosphere. The geese flying in on the Atlantic flyway were impressiv...  more »

  • A really great park in Queens. There is a globe constructed for the 1964 World Fair which is one of the longest ever made. Also there is a column from the temple of Artemis donated by the king of Jordania for the event. I think that the two disks east the globe are the ones that appeared in Men in black but I'm not sure. The museum at the other side is child oriented but still a decent place if you have nothing to do at all.
  • This place was state of the art in 1964 the 1st pic but it's seen some wear and tear over the years. The NYS Pavilion (Men In Black fame) is falling apart and chained up. I remember roller skating there in the late 70's. The world globe us still magnificent and is very well lit up and can be seen for miles. Park money could be well spent saving some of these sites. True 1964 this site was in its heyday. But it's still a fun place to come with family today.
  • A really great park in queens. Iconic to new york itself. They have a parking lot. There is a zoo located in the park, and also a carnival area where they have a carousel and small roller coasters for children. In the summer they have several cultural festivals and is really great. They have live performances and many food vendors. There is also a skating rink and a pool on different sides of the park. There is also the iconic world sphere and a museum.
  • My annual attendance of the US Open. 5 stars. Only complaint is the food pricing. Outrageous. Everything else was awesome. For an event this size to run this smoothly is amazing.
  • Great park. Family friendly. Lots of activities. It's huge so there's plenty of spots to choose to throw down a blanket and set up camp for the day to chill.
