Cunningham Park in Fresh Meadows is a great park for a Walk, Jog and great place for the kids to run around. the recent upgrades with BBQ pits are phenomenal! Great pace for family gatherings. Park is clean. Great place to play sports.
A fun place to exercise, play sports, have a picnic, relax, etc. A large area so everyone can havs their privacy. Tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields and lots of grass to run and play. Not very busy all the time. Parking lots on entrances allow it to be easily accessible. Overall, a fun place and is highly recommended to visit.
