Not just the parks but what are the surrounding areas like. Someone who knows this area of Queens well might know this.

Rainey Park is the smallest of the 3 equal to maybe 1 or 2 City blocks, located on Vernon Blvd. on the east, East River to the West facing Manhattan. It is in a heavy industrial area, with a small play area with showers for young children.

Queens Bridge Park is also on Vernon Blvd. to the East and Manhattan to the West. Just above the park is the Queensboro Bridge (a/k/a 59th Street Bridge). Opposite the park on Vernon Blvd. is the Queens Bridge Housing Projects which is the largest housing project in Country, and at one time the most dangersous project. The Park is rather nice and recently improved, although not very large it is bigger than Rainey Park.

Astoria Park is quite large compared to the others. It has a ball park, running trac, small children's playground, nice walking paths, and most importantly an olympic size swimming pool, diving pool and toddler pool.
