The fourth largest public park in New York City, Flush­ing Mead­ows-Corona Park, located in the bor­ough of Queens, was cre­ated as the site of the 1939/1940 New York World’s Fair and also hosted the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair.

Since 1978, the US Open has taken place in Flush­ing Mead­ows Corona Park, located in Queens, New York. It con­sists of the United States Tennis Asso­ci­a­tion (USTA) Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Arthur Ashe Sta­dium is center court, and its sec­ondary sta­dium court is Louis Arm­strong Sta­dium.

The $550 mil­lion Sports Spec­ta­cle” trans­for­ma­tion ini­ti­ated in 2010 includes three newly con­structed sta­di­ums; com­ple­tion of the Arthur Ashe Stadium’s retractable roof, the largest of any other tennis sta­dium in the world; new hos­pi­tal­ity and enter­tain­ment set­tings; and sig­nif­i­cant improve­ments to the public realm for 750,000 spec­ta­tors, spon­sors and ath­letes. Over the past five years, USTA’s roll-out of new sta­di­ums and ameni­ties has sub­stan­tially improved the over­all expe­ri­ence, result­ing in increased atten­dance and eco­nomic impact.

Included in the ren­o­va­tions are a new South Plaza, relo­ca­tion of the Court of Cham­pi­ons,” a new Pedes­trian Allee, and new food and bev­er­age con­ces­sions. The Selux MTR Square was chosen to illu­mi­nate the Court of Cham­pi­ons, which includes a view of the Uni­sphere, the iconic symbol of the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair.
