    Great park in Chinatown! It could be busy during the weekend and national holidays.

    Come here, rock out, and play some chess with some old Cantonese people. Also boasts a public bathroom, for the exceptionally brave.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    There’s an amazing mix of people congregated here – old, young, athletic, crazy – and we love it. The public bathrooms are the cleanest around.

    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".
