    Great place to ride your bike, go for a run, lay out in the sun...basically it's just a great place if you want to spend time outdoors in the city.

    LOVE the dog beach! what a great thing for dogs to play in 😍 this park is relatively clean and is well-lit once it's dark. I feel safe on the track in the evenings. I have seen cops patrol often.

    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.

    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!
