The coming months could go a long way in shaping the future of Queens’ largest park. A public review process is expected to begin in October for a proposed expansion of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, and Major League Soccer has proposed a plan to construct a 25,000-seat stadium on the current site of the Fountain of the Planets on the park’s northeast edge. The public review process for that plan could begin as early as the spring.
Fairness Coalition of Queens, a group of local organizations
ranging from church groups to the park's soccer leagues, will host a community
forum this coming Monday featuring elected officials and community and faith
leaders from the surrounding neighborhoods. Proposed plans for the projects
aren’t final, and there’s still an opportunity for the public to have a direct
say in the park’s future.
