  • My child and I loved the play area. The place is pretty clean and well equipped. They have an area dedicated for pets. The location is beautiful for a stroll or jog or just to spend some good time sitting by the water.
  • My favorite park in Queens, very easy to get to. Love, that you can take NYC ferry from two different locations within the park. My ongoing complaint is that there are not enough restrooms. On the weekend it can be a 10-15 minute wait to use the ladies room. It's insane for a park this large.
