Experience Long Island City's Waterfront Parks

Hunters Point Parks Conservancy, a nonprofit volunteer-run organization, was formed as the "Friends of the Gantry" in 1998 by a group of  dedicated Long Island City residents  determined to improve the quality of life at the waterfront in Hunters Point, Long Island City. In 2014, the Friends of the Gantry expanded its mission and evolved into the Hunters Point Park Conservancy – including the newly opened Hunters Point Park South Park and LIC Landing restaurant and event space.

Our parks offer recreational activities including a soccer field, basketball courts, playgrounds and volleyball courts. Its gardens and spaciousness also provide plenty of room for quiet solitude.

The Conservancy hosts programs and events including park clean-ups, movies, concerts, fitness activities, community celebrations and more.
