Flushing Meadows features large areas of open space and a pleasant place for a stroll. Meadow Lake is located in the southern section of the park, emptying its waters into the Flushing River and subsequently into Flushing Bay. The area around Meadow Lake features walking trails, bicycling paths, and picnic tables. Boat rentals are available at the lake, which is also the venue for the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival held every year in August. Recreational facilities at Flushing Meadows include playgrounds for kids and playing fields.
