Children who spend time outdoors develop strong imaginations and learn to socialize better with others.  

Urban Park Rangers are role models who connect children with nature to encourage  active exploration of the natural world in a safe, supportive atmosphere.

While nearly all of our programs are family friendly, the programs highlighted here are specifically designed for young children and families. Whether enjoying a family-friendly beach exploration, freeing your imagination playing in nature, or learning about conservation through eco-crafts, a free Ranger program is the perfect addition to your family’s weekend. 

All supplies provided.

Know Before You Go

ParkFort Totten Park

The parking lot at Little Bay Park - in front of the Fort Totten entrance is under construction. The project will include the construction of a new comfort station and expansion of the parking lot at Little Bay Park to serve users of both Little Bay Park and Fort Totten Park. The existing parking lot will be reconstructed and new planted islands (swales) will be added to improve air quality and reduce storm water run-off. The Brooklyn-Queens Greenway, which currently runs along the southern end of the park, will be relocated along the waterfront and extended into Fort Totten Park. New landscaped meadows and tree plantings will be added between the parking lot and the Cross Island service road, and a new comfort station will be added to Little Bay Park. This project will improve public access to Little Bay and Fort Totten Parks and will improve the utility and public enjoyment of the Greenway.


Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
