About Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy

Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy has worked for over 30 years to bring Brooklyn Bridge Park to life. We started out as grassroots advocates, bringing together residents, government, and local supporters to transform an abandoned waterfront into the park you see today. Now an essential supporter, the Conservancy works in partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park to ensure the Park reaches its full potential as a dynamic and vibrant public space for all of Brooklyn, New York City, and beyond. The Conservancy produces diverse and innovative programming for Park visitors and cultivates volunteer and philanthropic support of this special place on the Brooklyn Waterfront. Since 2000, over 1,700,000 visitors have enjoyed the Conservancy’s free events and activities in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

In 2018, we welcomed more than 100,000 visitors to over 500 free and low-cost cultural, educational, and recreational events in the Park. The Conservancy’s Environmental Education program served over 20,000 visitors through Open Hours at the Ed Center and school programs in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

This year, join us for boating, kayaking, fitness classes, basketball clinics, stargazing, history tours, seining, our 20th anniversary of Movies With a View, concerts, author talks, and more.
