Marie Curie Park

211th St and 46th Ave
Queens, NY 11361


Named after Marie Sklodowska-Curie, the revered Polish scientist and the first person to be awarded with two Nobel Prizes (one in physics, one in chemistry), this 2.42-acre park was opened in 1956. One of three Queens school parks to be named after famous scientists—the others are named after Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton—it features basketball courts, handballs courts, a 40-foot outdoor pool and a sprawling lawn that was renovated in 1999 to include kid-friendly spray showers.
