Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Named for Calvert Vaux, an English architect who spent 40 years of his career in New York City, mostly working alongside Frederick Law Olmsted and designing numerous public spaces, the park is a fitting tribute to a man who valued community space so much.

Largely bounded by Gravesend Bay, Calvert Vaux Park, which was largely created out of sand, soil and rock excavated for the construction of the Verazanno-Narrows Bridge, not only offers water views and glimpses of the winged wildlife naturally attracted to such an ideal setting, but also a playground, a main entry rain garden, two synthetic turf fields, basketball courts, bocce courts, six baseball diamonds, a soccer field and a newly restored waterfront.
