    Hey everyone!, just heard from a tv news reporter at the park, that there was an attempted sexual assault on a woman tonight around 7:00pm. Please be careful out there people! And stay safe

    Fall Foliage: Walk under a canopy of autumn’s rich palette of towering oaks, and an under-layer of Dogwood, Sassafras, and Cork tree, all part of the largest continuous oak forest in Queens.

    At 538 acres, there's hardly an activity you can't do here. The sports complex has a running track, handball court and baseball fields. There is also an 18-hole golf course and nature trails.

    Right after it snows, when the first warm day happens, talk a walk here. You'll see more activity than almost anyplace in Kew Gardens/Forest Hills, even the LIRR at rush hour!
