Flushing Meadows Corona Park

Flushing Meadows Corona Park often referred to as Flushing Meadows Park, or simply Flushing Meadows is a very scenic, massive greenspace housing World's Fair monuments plus museums, sports facilities, a zoo and more. Here you can enjoy a picnic, a bike ride, have some street food, or just a nice stroll through. You can go here all around the year but the best time would be from April when you can see the blooming cherry blossoms until the end of the summer. They also have field for cricket, nice lake view and all for free, lot of parking spaces, no entrance fees. Definetely a hidden gem, highly recommended!
