Forest Park

Local nameForest Park
LocationQueens, New York City, USA

Forest Park is a park in the New York City borough of Queens, spanning 538 acres. It is the tenth-largest park in New York City and the third-largest in Queens. Created on August 9, 1895, it was originally referred to as Brooklyn Forest Park, as the area was part of Brooklyn at the time.

The park contains 165 acres of trees, including the largest continuous oak forest in Queens. Some trees are more than a century and a half old. The park sits on hills left behind by the Wisconsin glacier and is a haven for native plants and wildlife in the midst of the city's sprawl. Beyond the park's many full-time avian residents, migratory birds pass through in the spring and fall.Several trails are available for area residents and urban day hikers. Other facilities include playgrounds, a carousel, a running track, two dog runs, a pond, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, and a golf course. The park is operated and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
