#17 of 21 in Parks in Queens
Cunningham Park is a 358acre park in the New York City borough of Queens. The park lies between the Grand Central Parkway to the south and the Long Island Expressway, and is bifurcated by the Clearview Expressway. The park is operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
The land for the park was acquired by the city starting in the 1920s, and was originally named Hillside Park. The park was renamed for New York City Comptroller W. Arthur Cunningham. The Long Island Motor Parkway provides a bike path through Cunningham Park, west to Kissena Park and east to Alley Pond Park, part of the Brooklyn-Queens Greenway.
Mountain biking trails run throughout northern areas of the park which include two major sections connected by an overpass that runs across the Clearview Expressway. Trails are signed by level and range from beginner to expert.

  • 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.
