    About Squibb Park & Bridge

    Squibb Park Bridge is temporarily closed.

    Walk across the award-winning Squibb Park Bridge and you may notice a little spring in your step. That’s because it was designed to be lightweight and flexible like the trail bridges in our state and national parks. Made with black locust timber, bronze and galvanized steel, Squibb Park Bridge connects Pier 1 with Brooklyn Heights, allowing visitors to come and go with ease and putting them within a stone’s throw of public transportation.

    Renovations to Squibb Park improve the community’s access to Squibb Park, Squibb Park Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge Park. New material and finishes in Squibb Park replicates the existing furnishings to be consistent with the neighborhood’s historic character. The original ramp has been re-graded in order to enable ADA access into the park for the first time. Newly installed lighting around the perimeter of the park allows the park to restore evening hours.
