The QueensWay is a community-led effort to transform a 3.5-mile stretch of abandoned railway in Central Queens, New York, into a linear park and cultural greenway.

When completed, the QueensWay will be a new kind of neighborhood park that will safely link to and enhance Forest Park. The park will be a showcase for Queens through cultural events and opportunities for local businesses. It will also provide a way to connect children with nature, create much-needed new play spaces, and offer the restoration of healthy and productive ecological systems. Plans include a path for safe walking and biking, and 47 acres of new open space for neighborhoods that are severely underserved by parks.
