Brooklyn Bridge Park COVID-19 Response

Brooklyn Bridge Park is working closely with the Mayor’s Office and the City’s Health Department to closely monitor this quickly evolving public health concern. The health and safety of BBP’s staff, visitors, and community is the top priority. While the Park is open, please note that it is open for passive use and solitary recreation only. We encourage people to walk their dog, go for a run, or just spend a few minutes outside. While visiting the Park, please practice good social distancing, staying at least six feet from others, and wear a face covering.

Until further notice, the following locations are closed:

Squibb Park and Squibb Bridge are open daily from 8am-10pm

Pier 5 sports fields and Pier 2 are open daily from 8am-8pm

For food concession hours, please check on the Eats and Drinks page.

All gatherings and team sports are prohibited in the Park until further notice. This includes all event permits and athletic permits for Pier 5 and Pier 6 Volleyball Courts, which are currently cancelled through the entire month of June. Please check back for future updates.

A message to runners and walkers in the Park from BBP President Eric Landau

Public parks are a vital part of urban living. We encourage visitors to the park at this time, but we ask that you do so in a socially responsible way – keep 6 feet apart from other people, wear a face covering, wash your hands or use hand-sanitizer frequently, do not shake hands, and stay home if you feel unwell.

Please take all precautions to protect yourself and those around you by following NYC Health Guidelines.
