Welcome to Sunnyside Gardens Park


Sunnyside Gardens Park is a three and a half acre park situated in historic Sunnyside Gardens, New York.

The park is used for a variety of sports programs for children including T-ball, soccer, basketball, tennis and others.  There are several fun and cultural events throughout the year that are open to the community at-large.

Letter from the President

    Thank you to our very determined Temporary Sprinkler Committee!

    Update:  Some of our very handy members came up with another low cost temporary sprinkler. Its a spray nozzle covered by a cut off caution cone.  It's an experiment, but hopefully a successful cooling one. 

    A work party by volunteer members is scheduled now for July 10th to attempt repairs on the main play sprinkler.

    Hot!  Don't worry. 

    New portable sprinklers are on their way. Soon, we will have a refreshing new splash of water outlets in the park approved by the board. Many thanks goes to the Temporary Sprinkler Committee who researched and figured out some cooling down fun.  Thank you - Eleanor P, Amy H, Huilan J, Dietmar D, Michelle M, Nicole M, Ann B, Nancy K, & Tom F.

    Who said its going to be a lazy summer?

    Wintertime might seem like a quiet time in the park. Our board of directors and staff are working very hard to prepare for the next season.  Our vice presidents, Ann Price and Soula Huderski are drafting up 2016 calendar of events.  Please reach out to them if you wish to organize an event.

    If you wish to organize a new event or fundraiser, please submit your ideas with a preliminary budget by the General Membership Meeting.

    We are currently on a hiring search for Park Associate.  A hiring committee has been formed and is currently working towards finding a new employee for the Park Associate position.  More information to come.  

    Please reach out to let us know if you are interested in volunteering for these committees: Membership, Facilities Rental, Sprinkler Improvements, & Pool renovation.  We are also looking for leaders for our volunteer crews; Pool, Movies, Shed, Vending & Arts & Crafts crews. 

    Enjoy the snow and sled fast!
