Janice Melnick has been named Flushing Meadows-Corona Park administrator.

Janice Melnick is excited about the challenge and potential of taking over Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

Since former Flushing Meadows-Corona Park administrator Estelle Cooper retired in January, Melnick had held the job in the interim, but now has officially taken over the job.

This is not the first time Melnick, who has worked at the Parks Department for 29 years, has come across Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. From 1990-96, she was the chief of stadia, which included overseeing Shea Stadium and the tennis center in the park.

There are countless opportunities for what Melnick called Queens’ “flagship park,” she said.

“We need to talk to the community and see what they’re interested in, what they want and provide those activities,” she said. “It’s a large park, but its still a community park.”

Prior to being named administrator of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Melnick worked as the northeast Queens administrator for eight years.

“I really look forward to the challenge; it deserves love and attention,” she said.
