This JHBG Committee works to improve Travers Park by cleaning, adding plantings, and advocating for increased funding and obtaining grants for programming and beautification projects.
Travers Park is located between 77th and 78th Streets and runs from 34th Avenue nearly to Northern Boulevard. It’s the only official public park in Jackson Heights, and a wide variety of residents rely on and enjoy the park. There are handball courts, basketball hoops, a tennis net, and a toddler area.
On Sundays a Greenmarket brings fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as baked goods, honey, eggs, and flowers, to the park.
