Beattie Square is one of the oldest public parks in Brooklyn. First dedicated in 1884, it was named in 1921 for Joseph S. Beattie, a Private in Company G of the 305th Infantry in the United States Army in World War I.

This woodchip-lined park, which faces the neo-classical Urban Sports and Cultural Center, lies along the boundary of Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant. Coniferous evergreens, pink and white primroses, hedges and thorny bushes make this site a woodsy escape from the surrounding streets.  An elegant black and gold four-foot-high fence encloses Beattie Square.
