Fodor's Expert Review Brooklyn Bridge Park

Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn Amusement Ride
Free Fodor's Choice

This sweeping feat of green urban renewal stretches from the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO to the Brooklyn Bridge and south all the way to Pier 6, carpeting old industrial sites along the waterfront with scenic esplanades and lush meadows. The park has playgrounds, sports fields, food concessions, the wonderfully restored Jane's Carousel, and lots of grass for lounging. The newest addition called Pier 2 Uplands includes a splash pad and huge lawn. You can access the park at various points; just head down the hill toward the East River and you can't miss it.
