Adult Playground coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 2

After all this crazy snowy winter, we're more than ready for some outdoor recreation!

Lucky for us, Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 2 is set to open this spring. When it is all set and done, Pier 2 will have several amenities: 5 full size basketball courts, a full size roller rink , 6 handball courts, 3 shuffleboard courts, 2 full size bocce courts, and a workout area with state of the art fitness equipment. But if you have something else in mind for active play, there will also be a half acre of turf for spontaneous play. In addition, swings of different sizes will accommodate children of all ages. Skates rentals and locker storage will be available to park visitors.

In keeping with the park's commitment to reuse existing structures from the waterfront, portions from an existing shed structure will be rebuilt into a shelter with a semi-transparent roof for protection against the sun and rain. Permit applications for sport courts will be available April 1, 2014.
