BACKGROUND: Located in Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bridge Park is the result of an effort to transform an abandoned waterfront into a dynamic and vibrant public space. It is a spectacular 85-acre park that stretches 1.3 miles along the Brooklyn waterfront. Framed by sweeping views of New York Harbor, the park features expansive lawns, sports fields, playgrounds, natural habitats, and direct water access. Parts of the park are still under construction. When completed, Brooklyn Bridge Park will be the second largest park in the borough. The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy keeps the park clean and organizes free events throughout the year.
