An Early Look at The QueensWay: New York City’s Next Great Park
Led By Ruben Ramales, Board Member / Friends of the QueensWay
Join guides from Friends of the QueensWay and The Trust for Public Land for a 3-mile walk alongside the northern section of this proposed ”cultural greenway” that will transform a long-abandoned rail line running from Rego Park, south to Ozone Park. If built, the QueensWay could highlight the many cultures of Queens (one of the most diverse urban areas in America) and provide pedestrian and bike linkages.
Please note, the walk will be approximately 3 miles and will take 2.5 hours. Most of the walk takes place on NYC sidewalks, which can be narrow at times. The ravine section in Forest Park will have rail ties, rail bed and debris. The brief walk on rail bed at the end takes 15-20 minutes. It will be harder for anyone with a wheelchair, bike, or baby carriage to walk on rail bed.
RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
