It is the second largest public park in the city of New York and is located in northern Queens. This park was created to locate there, the New York World's Fair of 1939. Then it was used also for the 1964 World's Fair. Land used to create this park was originally a landfill. The cleaning of the ashes arose a mountain which was distributed (as filler) along highways J. R. Parkway and Long Island Expressway.
The park holds the tennis tournament at the U.S. Open. Its main stadium is the Arthur Ashe, which can accommodate the largest number of viewers between the stages of tennis worldwide. The park has an aquatic center (with indoor lap pool), or pedal boats to paddle, bike paths and a skate park approved by the NHL. In Flushing Meadows is also the newly built (2009) Stadium New York Mets (baseball), Citi Field.
