A new and expansive addition to Brooklyn’s green spaces, Brooklyn Bridge Park extends along the historic Brooklyn waterfront from the Manhattan Bridge south to Atlantic Avenue. Though some areas are still in development, the majority of the park is open to the public. The park is divided into twelve areas, which range in composition from sport fields and courts to a dock for kayacking, rollar rinks to children's playgrounds, and nature trails to a beach. Regardless of the area, the park offers sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan’s East Side from South Ferry to Midtown. During the warmer months of the year, Brooklyn Bridge Park plays host to a wide range of cultural and artistic attractions; in the Spring and Summer of 2016, the Park will offer performances of Shakespeare, classic and family-friendly films under the stars, and book-talks sponsored by local booksellers.
