Rockaway Community Park is an intriguing example of the diversity of New York City’s parks.  Situated on 253 acres on the Jamaica Bay in southern Queens, Rockaway Community Park offers a great opportunity for wildlife and nature lovers.  Bird watchers can observe exotic birds in their natural habitat, like a snowy owl hunting his prey, while fishing enthusiasts can cast their lines in the wide open watersheds.  When exploring the marshes and shoreline of Rockaway Community Park, it is easy to imagine a simpler time far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  Once a resort for the well-heeled of New York, Rockaway Community Park is now an unspoiled getaway for all New Yorkers.
