Brooklyn Bridge Park Update: What’s Open, What’s Being Restored

November 5, 2012

Brooklyn Bridge Park reopened to the public Saturday morning, after floodwaters impacted several areas of the park, including play surfaces in the Swing Valley playground at Pier 6 and the playgrounds at Main Street and Pier 1. Electrical and irrigation equipment were also affected by flooding, as were lawns and horticulture.

Here’s the official update from BBP: All pathways will be open from dawn to dusk, including the Main Street dog run, Tobacco Warehouse and Picnic Grove at Empire Fulton Ferry, East River Ferry at Pier 1 and Sandbox Village, Slide Mountain and the dog run at Pier 6.

The following areas of the park will be closed until further notice: Main Street playground, Jane’s Carousel at Empire Fulton Ferry, Pier 1 playground, Sand Volleyball Courts at Pier 6 and Swing Valley at Pier 6. All lawns will be closed temporarily as damage from the storm is repaired. Check back with the Park’s Facebook page for updates. (Photo: Claude Scales)
