This playground, located near the Brooklyn entrance to the Kosciuszko Bridge, offers kids and families in Greenpoint a place to congregate. After a 2018 expansion, this block-long playground features colorful green and red play equipment for kids and toddlers and a spray shower that looks like a leaf in a rock garden. Teens and young adults can enjoy the basketball court and skate park, and all can relax in the seating area located near the comfort station.
