Nearly 20 years in the making, Brooklyn Bridge Park’s 85 acres of waterfront property are now 90% complete. The park recently opened their lush lawn, Pier 3. Now all of the park's six piers have been successfully converted into space open to the public. With summer attendance off to a busy start, the picturesque waterfront complex will give Central Park a run for the money.

Brooklyn Bridge Park was in need of more dedicated "hang out space." No longer an industrial-site eyesore, the five-acre Pier 3 includes plenty of space to stretch out, read, or stroll in a manicured nature labryinth dotted with plants, mirrors, and some salvaged lost treasures.

The other good news is that Domino Park, a six+acre stretch by Brooklyn’s former Domino Sugar factory along the East River in Williamsburg, has also completed renovation and is now open to the public.

There's also a super-cool new kids’ playground, plus a sand-filled volleyball court, bocce courts, and a tasty grub spot by Danny Meyer's Tacocina. The park is adorned with salvaged items from the factory like syrup tanks.
