Socrates Sculpture Park
Very artsy with a beautiful view of the city. Has lots of dogs and sits next door to Costco.
The views are just awesome. There are year-round activities. Keep in mind that the park gets locked up at dusk.
Changing sculpture exhibitions every 6 months in a waterfront setting with stunning views of Manhattan. Peaceful, too, and a greenmarket on Saturdays (April-October). A really good local coffee roaster (XXX Coffee) sets up shop in farmers market season.
Socrates Park is very beautiful to see Manhattan from afar and enjoy the sunset. You can get there by bus or cab, or about a 30 minute walk. I also recommend you take the ferry to Manhattan and enjoy the views!
This little park is still a pretty well kept secret. Sculptures and pieces of arts along little pathways and between trees. Must see!
Located right by the Welling court mural project and Astoria Park, this smaller park has views of manhattan and various installation art pieces.

It's a gorgeous, relaxing outpost right off the ferry that everyone can enjoy. The park hosts events, new curated exhibits and a refreshing place to visit when you need to sit, think and enjoy some good art. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I've been returning ever since. it is only 10 min walking from home.
