    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.

    Best trail in NYC hands down. I have been running here for over 10 years and have not experienced a better trail in NYC.

    Over 500 acres of open space, 165 of which are trees. If you're feeling oxygen-deprived and want to watch sunlight filter down through leaves, this park is your best option. Read more

    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...)

    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

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

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

    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!

    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
