When you rent in Forest Hills, you'll be surrounded by parks. Bordered by two of the largest parks in Queens, Forest Hills also is home to many other popular playgrounds and green spaces. Planners created the neighborhood to mimic garden communities of England, and it features a number of Tudor-style homes. Construction in the Forest Hills Gardens section used a distinctive, prefabricated technique in which homes were built from precast concrete panels. Forest Hills was the site of the U.S. Open tennis tournament through the late '70s and remains connected to tennis; the Tennis Stadium now hosts cultural events and concerts.
