Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation

Overview

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, known as Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP), is the non‐profit organization that plans, builds, maintains and operates Brooklyn Bridge Park, an 85‐acre sustainable waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline.

Mission

Our mission is to provide an exceptional public space that connects people, nature, and the waterfront through inclusive, innovative, and sustainable management and design.

Governance

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Board of Directors is 17-member board that governs Brooklyn Bridge Park. The members of the Board of Directors are appointed by the Mayor of New York City and chosen by the Mayor, the Governor of New York State, and local elected officials. Meetings of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Board of Directors are open to the public. Please see here for information on bylaws, meetings, and agendas and past meeting minutes.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Advisory Council (CAC) is the primary forum through which the community can provide feedback and comments to the Corporation on its major initiatives and policies. Membership for the CAC was chosen in consultation with local elected officials representing the park. The CAC is governed by its own set of by-laws that pertain to, among other things, selection of officers, voting, formation of committees and the scheduling of meetings.
