This marshy East Flatbush park comprises a 1.25-mile channel that empties into Jamaica Bay in nearby Bergen Beach. Paerdegat Basin, whose name means “horse gate,” in Dutch is a saltwater wetland area.
Paerdegat Basin is surrounded by two neighborhoods that were developed in the 1960s. Both communities, Georgetown (to the west) and Paerdegat Basin (to the east), are small, designated parts of larger neighborhoods. Georgetown is officially part of Bergen Beach, and Paerdegat Basin of Canarsie.
