Brooklyn Bridge Park reopened to the public Saturday morning, after floodwaters impacted several areas of the park, including play surfaces in the Swing Valley playground at Pier 6 and the playgrounds at Main Street and Pier 1. Electrical and irrigation equipment were also affected by flooding, as were lawns and horticulture.
Here’s the official update from BBP: All pathways will be open from dawn to dusk, including the Main Street dog run, Tobacco Warehouse and Picnic Grove at Empire Fulton Ferry, East River Ferry at Pier 1 and Sandbox Village, Slide Mountain and the dog run at Pier 6.
The following areas of the park will be closed until further notice: Main Street playground, Jane’s Carousel at Empire Fulton Ferry, Pier 1 playground, Sand Volleyball Courts at Pier 6 and Swing Valley at Pier 6. All lawns will be closed temporarily as damage from the storm is repaired. Check back with the Park’s Facebook page for updates. (Photo: Claude Scales)
