Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Wow! What a space... we stayed in a hotel in LIC and found this gem of a park 5 minutes from where we were. It is stunning at night with the view of Manhatten illuminated in all it's glory and picturesque in the day with play area, coffee bar and boardwalk. You can even take the NY Waterway over to Manhatten from here. Kids loved it and so did we.

There is a nice breeze from the East River. The views across the river are fantastic. the park is more for residents than tourists as there is a dog park and children's playground. It has interesting full lounge chairs. Lots of cement. I hope the trees grow soon.

Great place for a romantic stroll with your other half ! Lots of places to sit and view the beautiful NYC skyline . You will also find a dog park , as well as a children's park which is clean and very well maintained. On the weekends there are sometimes live music performers !

Our son and family live in a high-rise directly across the street, and we cannot be more complimentary about this oasis. They bring their children daily to play in several very nice areas including a soccer field with astro turf, a water park (sprinklers), playground equipment, lovely landscaping, piers with seating, neighborhood feel, periodic musical events. Friendly people. Place is beautifully maintained. A real treasure.
