On Sukkos we sit down for several hefty meals with our family and friends, but remember, the holiday is not about the food but rather the gathering of people to eat together only in the sukkah. This holiday, focus on everything around you instead of the food. With so many people to see, decorations to admire, kids to entertain, and tasks to make the holiday complete, you’ll have your hands full and can leave room just for the food you’ve planned to eat.

In previous years, the Queens Jewish Link has kept its Chol HaMoed Guide to Parks within the borders of Queens.

Here are a few post-millennial parks that are worth a visit in the coming days. Full disclosure: I work for the Parks Department during the day.
