  • If you love Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline, then you need to take a stress free stroll in Brooklyn Bridge Park. So nice and relaxing in all seasons! 
  • It's a great park overlooking the whole beautiful Manhattan skylines in day n lovely romantic night views. This park has different outdoor activities for a couple n families. 
  • A stunning spot for a BBQ! Go during the week when it's not so busy. Great people watching and gorgeous view. There are playgrounds for the kids and a beach. Grab ice cream from ample hills Creamery for dessert.
  • new park overlooking the bay and at 2 bridges. lots of people laying out here and enjoying the weekend, great atmosphere of "chill" around here. Would love to come back with a good book or something. Great photo ops here as well.
  • Epic waterfront park with something for everyone. There's a restored, old-fashioned children's carousel, basketball courts, Zumba classes, lawns, piers, fantastic city and bridge views, food stalls, bathrooms, benches and a shared jogging / walking / biking path. In the summer, there's often an outdoor photography exhibit on the fence.
  • Great, nice, clean, place! Lots of family friendly activities. Very long! If you plan to visit, find out which pier you want to go to first. Walking from pier 1 to pier 6 on a hot day was not ideal.
  • Beautiful park along the now open waterfront in this area. The design is naturalistic with winding paths, and buffeted areas, and a zig zagging footbridge from the Brooklyn heights promenade. Theres also a large open space for field sports, and ferries are available departing to either governors island, or across to manhattan. Only negative is you can't just help but be reminded of gentrification, of the luxury buildings and money now moving into the area.
