This park is located next to the COSTCO parking lot, however, Socrates Park has stimulating art and waterside tranquility on most days.

We stumbled upon this Park on the way from Astoria Boat Ferry Terminal which is close by. Perhaps not at it’s best and needing some TLC. However, in fairness there were a number of people about, and it hosts a number of local events.

This little known treasure is technically Long Island City , but is a short walk from my daughter apt in Astoria. There are rotating exhibits. Park is on the river easily reached by nyc Ferry and bus. It is not a large park , 10-20 pieces at any given time. Quiet and peaceful
