    One of the best parks I've ever been too. Offers trails for running, walking and exploring! Plenty of places to stop, relax, picnic, etc. Takes a completely different pace from the rest of the area!

    Vanderbilt playground has a fabulous enclosed area for toddlers with a climbing structure and water feature in the summer. Excellent big "spider web" for older kids and decent shade.

    Brooklyn's premier park. If you want to get away from the city bustle, take a hike in the spring or fall. New spots to find each time.

    Beautiful ~600 acres that seems endless, designed by the same architects of Central Park (but known as their fave!). Full of gems like the boathouse, skating rink, lakes, & great bike/running routes.

    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.
