About the Area
Flushing Meadows Corona Park is home to a couple staples of American sports. Bike over to two legendary arenas, including Citi Field, home of the New York Mets baseball team, and the USTA National Tennis Center, site of the U.S. Open. The National Tennis Center is open to the public throughout the year, offering three stadiums, plus dozens of indoor and outdoor courts.
Snap some pictures of Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s Unisphere, the iconic 12-story globe that towers over the park, then bike across the park to Queens Zoo. Queens Zoo features 11 acres of animals and exhibits, including the Children’s Farm, which offers up close and personal exhibitions of domestic animals.
Flushing Meadows has activities for the whole family, as it is also home to the Playground for All Children, New York Hall of Science, and the Queens Museum of Art, all within biking distance from our location on Meadow Lake at Ederle Terrace. Send the kids to let off some steam at The Playground for All Children, the first playground created for children with or without disabilities.
