“Don't miss a concert/movie here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Long lines, sure. But worth it. Bring your own food and drink (we got ours at nearby Trader Joe's) and watch something spectacular under the stars (free) with your friends. This is prime Brooklyn freebie and it can't be beat.

“Concert in the park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

It was great to enjoy some music, a picnic, and friends in the park. It reminds me a lot of a Central Park, of course. Lots of room to run around with kids, great paths, a total must when in Brooklyn.

“Good, very good, even when raining...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Unfortunately it has been a rainy day, but we really appreciated the park anyway! A lot of trees and meadows but most of all a lot of people running... First sunny days we will surely go back!
Much less crowded than Central Park but equally well-maintained.

“A park in need of attention”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We enjoyed the paths but it was obvious that work is needed. Perhaps there is unrepaired damage from Sandy?

“My favorite place in Brooklyn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

This place is a gem. Designed to include a forest, lake and fields you can forget that you are in the city. Spring, summer and fall there is no where better.
