Foursquare Tips

  • Fall Foliage: Walk under a canopy of autumns 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.
  • The best hill for sledding is at Mary Whelan Playground, located at 79th Street and Park Lane South.
  • Time to visit. Horse riding too.
  • Best in Autumn, biking and/or hiking.
  • This park is so safe, day or night! Just beware of racoons at night :)
  • A beautifully landscaped park ideal for morning jog,walking the pooch or simply walking with the one you're with ,and pretty safe too.
  • Are you ready to Make NYC Your Gym and Walk NYC! Enjoy long walks with other NYers on Saturdays from 1pm-3pm. For more information email
  • On the bike
  • 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
  • Uncrowded NYC park. Great for walking, biking, and roller blading. Live concerts at Bandshell with parking, weather permitting.
  • Summer carousel opens up live music in shell theatre.
  • 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.
  • great bike area, rest stop for 2011 tour de queens
  • Stunning park right around the corner from bustling Austin Street. Incredible. It's like a different world.
  • Legendary Forest Park offers ice skating, twinkling lights and a bonfire experience - perfect for a winter evening.
  • Great place for a run! Gravel path that's not so harsh on the ole knee-caps
  • 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.
  • So glad to see the addition of a dog run on the northwest side of park near forest hill gardens and union turnpike.
