Our Urban Park Rangers will be your guides to the solar system, discussing the science, history, and folklore of the universe.  Fall and winter are the best times to observe meteor showers, the phases of the moon, and many planets of the Milky Way. Night Sky programs highlight the history and folklore of the solar system, using the naked eye to locate stars and planets.

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: 09/30/2014
