    Best running path in the area. Circle around the hill is just about a mile. Try uphill too for an extra challenge.

    Steve Malone · November 12, 2014
  • Alyssa B.

    Nice for picnics but not really very nature-filled. Though I did almost get attacked by a racoon here once.

    The historic site was Brooklyn’s first park and is now a tourist attraction and a neighborhood hangout for students, cyclists, joggers, and families.

    If you have a dog, kind of a must on weekend mornings before 9.30AM.

    Wesley V · March 8, 2014

    Fantastic park to rob folks of the new iPhone 5s! Exit the Park via Myrtle Ave after robbery into Walk Whitman houses for easiest escape route.

    I love this park! Come back for the farmer's market on Saturday mornings. Hit up Walter's for a snack. Notice the placards marking the "tree trail" - there are 20 different kinds of trees here!

    The first thing was, I learned to forgive myself. Then, I told myself, "Go ahead and do whatever you want, it's okay by me."

  • The Corcoran Group

    Run off-leash between 9pm-9am at this park. Slight elevations throughout the park keep it interesting for the dogs and the humans!
