This page takes a broad definition of parks, listing traditional public parks and public spaces that enable public access at some point during the year. [Diversity Plaza] is an example of the later.

Many of the residential co-op buildings in Jackson Heights have private gardens, accessible to building residents. These are sometimes discussed as parks. Find information on them here.

Public Parks[edit]

Bulova Park also known as Moser Park

The park contains swings, sitting areas, several full basketball courts, handball courts, a boccie court, and play equipment. The park’s most outstanding facility is the handicap accessible softball field. The field, which is the only one of its kind in Queens, features wider bases and base paths modified for wheelchair access.

Private Parks and Gardens[edit]

One of the more unique aspects of Jackson Heights is the existence of private parks or gardens that exist mid-block around its residential buildings. Access to these parks is limited to building residents. However in mid-June the JHBG sponsors viewing opportunities.
