Nearly three years after SuperStorm Sandy, Andrews Grove is back and a real gem in an area with a bunch of really nice parks.
If you have ever been a child (or had a child) in the Ridgewood/Glendale area of Queens, you have been to Mafera Park. But you probably knew it as The Oval or Farmers’ Oval.
Isn’t it funny that children who hate showers love playing in the sprinklers. That isn’t really specific to Poppenhausen Playground in College Point, Queens, but it was the case for us.
Sometimes simplicity is the best thing. That is why the Joseph E. DeVoy playground in Forest Park, Queens, is not only one of my kids’ favorite parks but mine.
Triassic Playground in Queens is a nice park, never too crowded and the breeze off the water will refresh everyone during the warmer months.
I packed up the car and headed over to Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, specifically Gantry Plaza Spray Park. I knew the water would be off, but we were still good to go.
