I love getting my kids on the school bus, then taking my bloggers butt over to Meadow Lake to do my turtle run in the morning. According to the NYC Parks Department: "This 84-acre manmade body of sparkling, fresh water is New York City's largest lake. A popular spot for boating, fishing, crew, and sailing, the water keeps splashing while scores of other recreational activities fill the surrounding athletic fields, bike paths, a model plane facility, and picnic areas."
Well, I can tell you they certainly summed it up rather nicely. I love jogging in this place! My kids, family and friends spend a lot of their play time here. It's minutes from Jamaica, Kew Gardens, Briarwood, Whitestone and Forest Hills. The Grand Central Parkway runs parallel on one side while the Whitestone Expressway flanks the opposite shores.
Here are a few views from my warm up and slow jog starting at the Boat House. For some really great things to do at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, check out this link from NYC.gov:
I Love New York. Enjoy your day!
