Brooklyn Bridge Park has created a guide to plants growing on Pier 1 (the pier accessed from the foot of Old Fulton Street).
Each year the vernal equinox heralds the start of the spring season. At Brooklyn Bridge Park, springtime is celebrated by the returning blossoms found in planting beds, along the edges of lawns and in the wide variety of trees planted just two years ago. Whether it is the large, fragrant flowers of the Saucer Magnolia, the small, buttery clouds of the Corneliancherry Dogwood, or the much anticipated first-bloom of our 8,000 Spanish Bluebells, spring in the park is exceptionally eye-catching and colorful. In homage to the start of spring and the beauty that it brings, Brooklyn Bridge Park is pleased to release our inaugural Spring Plant Guide.
The guide contains information about fourteen species of plants that blossom in spring, and includes a handy map to find them. Go to the Park’s website and follow the link to download the Guide.
