This park is such a gem in downtown Brooklyn. I've only visited at weekends when there are no cars so it is idyllic for walking and cycling, with dogs, children in tow. There is a dog beach, children's water park, spots to get food, dog-off-leash...More

My sister had her wedding here, at the boathouse. It was amazing. Not the easiest place to get to, but worth it if you'll be in the area for a while.

We walked through the park after visiting the Brooklyn Museum, it's a great space which was packed with locals and families enjoying the green spaces and lakes. Good for a nice walk and people watching - plus we saw a chipmunk ... AWESOME!

I grew up in this park and love it's long meadow and paddle boats. It is a comfortable 3.36 miles distance around to run. A great, newly redone skating rink and hosts many concerts including Celebrate Brooklyn concerts in the summer.

We arrived by cab but didn't see parking near the zoo. We had a problem getting a cab afterwards as none passed that weren't pre-booked. In the end we had to walk a fair way to the library and ask for help from the... More
