Ornamental trees and shrubs, lawn, vegetable and flower beds. Benches, picnic tables, BBQ area with wrought iron fencing & play space for children. Dedicated by Mayor Ed Koch in 1984, this Plant-A-Lot sponsored community garden and playground has been providing recreational play space for the Amboy Day Care Center children for early 20 years.




There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!
