    where to go if you want to escape the building and city life, but not hang around a bunch of tourists like you find at Central Park. pretty much all Brookynites.

    Прекрасный парк😻 когда тепло весь парк обойдёшь и глазом моргнуть не успеешь! Вокруг все бегают, занимаются, ну и пикники устраивают конечно👌

    No place better on a warm late summer Sunday afternoon. Bring friends and a picnic and you'll see why.

    My favorite park in the city! Aside from Grand Ferry Park (more quaint and small). If you're looking for an alternative to CP with lots of picnic spots, go!

    Umm, I kinda felt like the grass could have been greener. But, maybe I was on the wrong side.

    The loop is a little over 3 miles around. Great for running and cycling.

    Heading up to Lookout Point in the south-center of the park is great fun. You can see the parachute jump tower at Coney Island!
