We are always working to maintain and improve Brooklyn Bridge Park. Here you will find a description of current work in the Park that may disrupt some areas of use. Some work you will see is construction to open new parkland, some is preventative, and is some restorative maintenance.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is working closely with the Mayor’s Office and the City’s Health Department to closely monitor and respond to COVID-19. The health and safety of BBP’s staff, visitors, and community is the top priority.
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. Playgrounds, dog runs, and picnic areas are open. Sports facilities are open, face coverings must be worn and social distancing must be maintained while using these facilities.
Until further notice, the following locations are closed:
- The Environmental Education Center and the building at 99 Plymouth
For food concession hours, please check the Restaurants & Cafes page.
Please take all precautions to protect yourself and those around you by following NYC Health Guidelines.
