Brooklyn Bridge Park

Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York, NY, USA

See Website

If you're in Brooklyn Heights, walk down cobblestoned Joralemon Street to Brooklyn Bridge Park, a former industrial wasteland turned into one of the city’s most beautifully landscaped parks. Piers alternate activity level: some are home to athletic fields, basketball courts or beach volleyball nets; others to quiet groves surrounded by native wildflowers and trees. All come with fabulous waterfront views. Complimentary kayak rentals are available in the summer.

You can also arrive via ferry, either at Atlantic Avenue or in DUMBO. The two ferry stations bookend the 1.3-mile, 85 acre park.
