    Take a walk in the fresh snow late at night ❄️

    Nice little hidden gem in the Kew gardens area. Make sure to stay on the paths otherwise you stumble upon trash left behind by teenagers (condoms, beer cans, the works...)

    I honestly think that Forest Park is a beautiful park...just watch out for the common wanted posters. 🙊

    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

    Wonderful park. Plenty of tables, but there are table hogs. Come early.

    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.

    Uncrowded NYC park. Great for walking, biking, and roller blading. Live concerts at Bandshell with parking, weather permitting.

    A beautifully landscaped park ideal for morning jog,walking the pooch or simply walking with the one you're with ,and pretty safe too.

    While the carousel at Forest Park has been closed since 2008, plans are in the works for its reopening. The Muller Carousel, as it is sometimes known, has been around since 1973. Read more

    Go to the carousel...before it suts down.

    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!
