Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

This park takes its name from the surrounding neighborhood. Fresh Meadows was previously known as Black Stump, for the rows of blackened stumps that marked the boundaries of the area’s many farms. Black Stump Road, now 73rd Avenue, was one of two roads that ran through Fresh Meadows during colonial times.
