The Greenway

Pedal your way through the twists, turns, and dips of Brooklyn Bridge Park. A designated bikeway travels from Pier 1 to Pier 6, offering riders beautiful views and easy access to key locations and amenities.

About the Greenway

Winding along the East River, the bike and pedestrian path called the Greenway, connects the Park’s piers from Pier 1 south to Pier 6. At Atlantic Avenue at Pier 6, the Greenway continues along the Brooklyn Greenway route.

Along the Greenway visitors can stop off at many of the Park’s food and drink concessions, lush lawns and gardens, or just enjoy the path along the river.

Cycling is permitted only on the designated bicycle path, which runs along the eastern side of the Greenway. Cycling is not permitted on park paths or the pier promenades and please yield to pedestrians crossing the path. Bike racks are located throughout the park. Do not lock your bike to park fences or railings.

For more information on cycling in the Park, visit the biking page.
