New York is a state full of natural beauty. Even though many associate New York with a concrete jungle, New York is full of wonderful parks for all citizens and residents to enjoy.
One of these parks is the Brooklyn Bridge Park, an 85-acre park where visitors can enjoy various sporting activities, outdoor movies at sundown and even Jane’s Carousel, a 1920’s restored marry-go-round. The park is also home to various Piers, one of which hosts a basketball court and another who hosts a playground.
The other, of course, is Central Park, where visitors and residents can spread out a blanket at Sheep’s Meadow and enjoy the view, play frisbee or just hang out. For those who are more active, the park also has various walking trails and streams to enjoy.
Less known but still worth a visit is the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, which is New York City’s second largest park, and is home to the Unisphere, a steel globe that was created for the 1964 World’s Fair. For nature enthusiasts, the green fields of this park also include a zoo, a boating lake, a barbecue area, and a $66 million aquatic and hockey center.
The same visionaries who designed Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted, and Calver Vaux, also helped designed Prospect Park. Home to the Long Meadow and Nethermead, which offer a spacious place to enjoy nature, the park was also the brain child of Robert Moses, a city planner who included some more child-friendly offerings such as a zoo and the Wollman Rink. Wollman Rink is currently known for throwing plenty of decade-themed skating parties throughout the summer months for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
One of the more exciting and modern parks currently in NYC is The High Line, which opened in 2009, and built on an elevated infrastructure in Manhattan’s West Side. A final expansion opened in 2014 and many visitors and residents can now enjoy a beautiful walkway, lined with the gardens and sculptures.
New York City is a city that appreciates the natural beauty of the world. If you are a resident of NYC, then many of these parks are a part of your everyday life.
