Offering a vast the amount of open space, plus sports and cultural institutions, no other park in New York City can rival the 1,255-acre Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

Flushing Meadows-Corona Park was the location of the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs. Many of the structures remain from the two fairs including the Unisphere which has become the Queen's most recognizable symbol and the park's most popular meeting place.

People from all over Queens come to enjoy the open spaces, play sports, picnic, or sit near New York City's largest lake, Meadow Lake.

In addition, the park is the home of the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Museum of Art, the Queens Theater in the Park, the Queens Wildlife Center, and the Queens Botanical Garden, as well as two professional sports facilities, Shea Stadium and the USTA National Tennis Center.
