Our Mission

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) for Flushing Meadows Corona Park, established in 2015, aims to develop and promote a sustainable, safe, healthy and thriving Flushing Meadows Corona Park by inspiring a culture of public stewardship and inclusivity for communities that use the park.

The mission of the CAB is to provide a representative and coordinated community voice to ensure that Flushing Meadows Corona Park remains an accessible, public resource. The CAB empowers local community members through engagement and advocacy.

As stewards, the CAB advocates for quality programming and activities in the park, for the park’s restoration, maintenance and improvement, and guides the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Alliance, park staff and elected officials on priorities to reflect local community values and needs.

Our Values

Public accessibility of the park

We believe all populations including people of all abilities, youth and seniors should be able to get to the park with ease and navigate within the park without difficulty.

Diverse and inclusive CAB membership

We strive for a membership that is representative of the diverse Queens communities that surround the park, including representatives from a range of socioeconomic, ethnic, linguistic and cultural perspectives.

Community engagement to promote public stewardship

We believe that in order for the park to serve the community, park users and local residents must be engaged and community input must inform major decisions that impact the park, including spending priorities and fundraising goals.

Environmental stewardship to protect and preserve park land

We support efforts to preserve and protect park land through environmental stewardship and the prevention of development that strips the community of open, green space.

Preservation and celebration of history and park assets

We will work to advocate to preserve and celebrate the 1964 World Fair structures and other important community park assets.

Educational resources for children, youth and adults

We promote the community’s use of the park as an educational resource for children and youth, and life-long learning opportunities for adults.

Recreation and active lifestyle opportunities for the community

We support opportunities to promote recreation and health through active activities in the park.
