Washington Park, once the grounds of the Battle of Brooklyn, is both a historic site and a center for both active and passive play. This park is home to the Old Stone House, originally built in 1699 by Claes Arents Vechte before being reconstructed from the original stones. Today, the Old Stone House serves as an interpretive and educational center dedicated to Brooklyn history and the largest battle in the American Revolution.

Washington Park features a skatepark, basketball courts, a popular dog run, a multi-use synthetic turf field, and places for both active and passive play. It is also the home to J. J. Byrne Playground, a place where toddlers and pre-teens can both play freely and imaginatively. With history and activity, come find out all that Washington Park has to offer.
