This park is a crown jewel for Queens. The park is immaculately maintained. There is an 18 hole golf course within. It's very challenging and you will need a motor cart.

One of the few parks that give Central Park a run for the money. It has everything from golf to a bit of peace. The kids love the carousel and lake.

If you're a tourist looking for a spectacle, this isn't it. You'll find more famous photos can be taken at nearby Flushing Meadows Park. But if you're a local person or you want to get away from the busy and congested city, there is nothing...More
