About The Project
About The QueensWay Plan
The QueensWay is a community-based planning initiative for a new neighborhood park space. The project will consider a 3.5-mile former rail line that runs through the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Rego Park, Woodhaven, Richmond Hill, and Ozone Park. The QueensWay also connects to Forest Park – the borough's third largest park.
Most of the QueensWay corridor remains largely untouched since the last train ran on the site over 50 years ago. This study will look at opportunities for converting the corridor into new publicly-accessible park space. Your participation and input are crucial for envisioning the possibilities of this space. The planning team for the QueensWay visioning process is creating many different opportunities for community members, business owners and interested individuals to become involved in this process: at public workshops, in-school sessions, online and informal outreach in the parks, plazas and other places in the neighborhood along the site.
The Trust for Public Land, in collaboration with the Friends of the QueensWay and other project partners, has commissioned planning and design services for its QueensWay Plan feasibility study to WXY architecture + urban design and dlandstudio Landscape Architecture and Architecture

It is our goal to include a wide variety of perspectives and opinions on the development of the QueensWay. We are looking for productive, constructive and informative dialog – and we'd like to make sure the comments reflect those goals. We won't delete comments or ideas just because they express specific points of view, though we do reserve the ability to delete comments which we judge to be:
> abusive or vulgar;
> solicitations and/or advertising;
> derogatory language;
> otherwise detrimental to the community.
We rely on users to identify comments which are abusive – that's what the little "Flag" link on every idea/comment/topic is for. If you feel that a particular comment is violating this policy or harming the conversation, flag it for us and we'll look into it right away.
We take the conversation here very seriously and would love to have you be part of it. Repe
