COVID-19 Fitness FAQs

  • What safety protocols are being implemented at your events?

      Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is thrilled to be able to offer virtual and in-person programs. Maintaining safety is our number one priority and we are following state, city, and CDC guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19.

      For the well-being of our community, we ask that anyone who exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19 or has recently come into contact with someone who has COVID-19 please stay home. To further ensure the well-being of our program participants, staff, partners, and volunteers, program procedures will now include the following requirements:

      1. All participants and staff must wear masks over their nose and mouth.
      2. All participants and staff will maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from one another.
      3. All participants must read and complete our updated waiver.
      4. Combined program participation and staffing will be limited to 50 people (after Labor Day).
      5. Shared materials will be limited as much as possible. Any materials that are shared will be sanitized between each use.
      6. Hand sanitizer will be provided on-site.
      7. Staff are expected to wash hands regularly and self-monitor and report any symptoms. Staff are required to stay home if they have any symptoms or have recently come into contact with someone with symptoms.
  • What is the capacity for fitness classes?

      We are limiting capacity to 50 participants, including on-site staff.

  • Do I have to wear a mask while working out?

      Yes. The safety of our staff, partners, and program participants is our number one priority. The Park is requesting all visitors practice good social distancing and wear a face covering while in the Park. In accordance with current NYC guidelines, during public programs we ask all participants and staff to wear face coverings, and maintain proper social distance.

  • Do I need to register for in-person fitness classes?

      Yes, we require advanced registration. Registration involves two steps — once you complete registration (found on each event page), you will be sent a confirmation email with a link to an online waiver which must be completed before you can participate in our fitness programming. Individuals who have not completed a waiver will not be permitted to join.

  • Do you provide mats?

      Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, we are not providing mats on-site for renting. Please bring your own.

  • Do you take walk ups?

      Yes, walk ups will be accommodated on-site if there are still spaces left or if there are no-shows.

  • How many spots can I reserve?

      Individuals may only register for one spot per class. Those who book multiple spots for one class will have their excess reservations removed.

  • Is there an age limit to participate?

      There is no age limit to participate, but children and teens under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All ages and abilities are welcome.

Permit FAQs

  • When do I need a permit?

      Generally, permits are required if you want to: bring a group larger than 20 people into the Park; have a wedding ceremony; film of photograph for professional/commercial purposes; or, have dedicated access to a sports field/court. This list is not exclusive or exhaustive.

      Please review the Permits section for more information on when a permit is needed and how to apply for one. Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be granted a permit. Your application is not approved until you have received a permit from Brooklyn Bridge Park. Applications may take up to 21 days to process after they have been submitted.

  • Do I need a permit to take photos?

      It depends on the photoshoot. Permits are required for commercial photo shoots, or groups larger than 20. Learn more about the permitting process on the permits page.

  • Can I get a permit for or reserve picnic tables or grilling areas?

      No, picnic tables and grilling areas are on a first come, first serve basis. When the grilling area is busy, we ask that grills are only used for one hour at a time.

  • Can I have my wedding in Brooklyn Bridge Park?

      Yes, permit applications for wedding ceremonies are available. Wedding ceremonies can be held on the on the Pier 1 Granite Prospect, on the Empire Fulton Ferry boardwalk and at the Main Street pebble beach only. Permits are required.
