    Great for people watching, and falcon sightings. Just curb your mexican hairless, if you don't want them to get swooped up. There are bats in the trees at night.

    The track is a great place to exercise but it's best to come in early as to avoid the crowds.

    The crowds have changed a bit over the years and while it's no longer the hipster paradise of yore, it's still a lovely place to read a book, take a run or watch/play dodgeball and softball.

    Be sure to bring a blanket! The lack of rain has made the grass a bit dry and prickly. But this is still the best park in Williamsburg!

    Solid neighborhood park, but nothing special worth visiting for

    Almost as good a place to go people watching as Washington square, but it's more spread out so it feels a bit quieter at first.

    It has a the things you could want in a park. Dog park, movie night, football field, track, pool, basketball courts, seriously what doesn't this park have?

    All American summer park vibe with none of the stuffiness, pretentiousness and perfection of Central Park. Real people, real grass and real weeds.

    The grass is usually burnt and destroyed, but fun to people watch during softball games. Grab a drink to go from the Turkey Nest.

    There's a lot to do at McCarren Park: basketball courts, baseball fields, a huge swimming pool. I come here to stare enviously at people's dogs.

    It’s worth noting that bringing your javelin to the dog park can ruffle some serious feathers.
