  • This has to be by far my of my favorite parks in Brooklyn. I’ve taken my bike around the park and it was really great. I’ve gone on long walks through the park, sun bathed in the summer, and I have always enjoyed the plaza north end of the park. I have never grilled there but I have seen many people celebrating and having a good time. There are lots of spots to explore and trails to walk. It never gets old!
  • Good Morning To All! I have been going here for many years since I was 15 and I still go. The park is wonderful \ beautiful in every way. Thank You Staff for keeping the park clean and the tree's health with a shine. The flowers\ ponds are lovely to sit by or touch. I really enjoy riding my bike there. Thank You!
