Tai chi in the early morning...... Soccer and basketball all day nice playground and seniors gossiping and playing marjong
People are weird and they don't smile ....
I felt Spring in China here.
Pick up soccer Sunday mornings, look it up on meetup.com
Probably the best people watching you could find... Possibly ever.
Wonderful Park, I loved the Chinese music and the people...
Enjoy the soccer fields and chess tables, but don’t be surprised if a live dance troupe or chorus takes over Chinatown’s most popular park.
Great for people watching. The retirement park for the seniors of Chinatown.
So dirty, full of rats!!!
Most interesting place to people watch in the city
Play pick-up with us Saturdays 2p and on. No douchebags wanted...
east meets west
If you dislike pigeons I would avoid this park.
Canal Street may have the commerce but this park has Chinatown's community. Stroll through the north end with its Mahjong and card players musicians, and old folks just sitting and chatting. Awesome.
Cops will try to kick you out for playing soccer. Fight the power =)
The amount of Chinese people lounging, singing, playing chess, whatever in this park is a serious glimpse into Chinese culture. Also, there's a soccer field in this park if you fancy.
There's a great playground plus traditional Chinatown sights such as groups of mah-jongg players and people practicing tai chi at sunrise.
Nice to see so many kids enjoying the park.
There’s an amazing mix of people congregated here – old, young, athletic, crazy – and we love it. The public bathrooms are the cleanest around.
Great traditional Chinese music and friendly people. Hen hao!
The mosquitos will eat you alive at night. Careful!
I lived near here for decades. Come here for a taste of (mostly southern) Chinese culture.
every Tuesday's at 10am there is an event
Great for some quiet thinking time! Spot the caged birds in the trees.
funny to see the outcome of the games that are played. Intense!!
From the Baxter & Bayard St. side of this park you might see who's getting booked at "The Tombs" and who's taking an "up north trip".
The Chinese Senior Citizen Orchastra is really fun to watch on Sunday afternoons in the spring and summer!
