With over 800 acres of outdoor splendor, visitors to Flushing Meadows Corona Park have an almost endless variety of vehicles to pedal, landmarks to visits, and sights to see! Rent a Surrey or cruiser bike and pedal past Citi Field and USTA National Tennis Center; headquarters of the New York Mets and the US Open. If you’re feeling like a few matches of tennis, you’re in luck, these courts are available and open to the public.
As Queen’s largest park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park first gained prominence as the host of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs. Although quite a few decades have passed since the park was in the international spotlight, millions of visitors a year continue to flock to this fantastic open space in one of the busiest areas of the state!
Take the opportunity to relax! Stop and smell the roses with a trip to the Queens Botanical Garden. If you’re looking for something a little more wild, take a quick ride south and visit the Queens Zoo to see a variety of animals native to the Americas! Not a problem if you’re feeling in the mood for a museum; visit the Queen Museum of Art or the New York Hall of Science! Whatever your activity preference, Flushing Meadows Corona Park offers something for everyone!
