65th Avenue is the closest place to park, and more often than not , there is a spot or two available. There is a traffic light here and a bus stop. Just getting beyond the bus stop, a good part of the pond can be viewed even from the sidewalk. There is a paved trail not too far to the north, but you can just descend down the grassy hill side before the trail. That'll bring you down closer to the center of the pond, anyway. And I might as well mention - now that I have no idea what time of the day this bird will show up - viewing gets progressively worse into the afternoon if it's sunny.

It is at the intersection of the LIE and the CIP. Douglaston parkway is the third side of the triangle with the pond in the middle. Street parking only.
