Playgrounds

Wind your way through endless acres of “wow” with one-of-a-kind features that stretch the body and the imagination.

Slide down a great-big, magical mountain. Go bananas on the Tarzan swing. Even though Brooklyn Bridge Park’s playgrounds only just opened in 2010, these cool, hideaway-style play spaces have already become a legendary daytrip destination for parents across all of New York City.

Created in consultation with experts from North Carolina State University’s Natural Learning Initiative and MVVA, Inc., each of the playgrounds’ swings, ropes, water channels, sandboxes and other features help hone the skills and interests of kids of all ages. Grab a hat, shovel (and kid!) and we’ll see you there!

The Water Lab is open for the season on days over 80 degrees. It closes for inclement weather.
