Columbus Park Pavillion

Tips from foursquare
NY (See) You don’t need to go to China to experience the Chinese culture. Come take a stroll in the park and experience everything from martial arts to little old men playing chess.
There’s an amazing mix of people congregated here – old, young, athletic, crazy – and we love it. The public bathrooms are the cleanest around.

The Chinese Senior Citizen Orchastra is really fun to watch on Sunday afternoons in the spring and summer!
Columbus Park is the only real park in Chinatown. Sit & enjoy the scene: old men playing mahjong, kungfu dudes, the occasional concert, etc.
