New Yorkled’s been passing through the piers of Brooklyn Bride Park for a while now this year with great anticipation of the opening of Pier 2 and beyond which were expected this season. Well, our wait has come to an end! What with the opening of Pier 2 and Pier 4 beach taking place on Thursday, May 22, at 3:30pm.
The program for that day begins promptly at 3:30pm with a celebratory ribbon-cutting, followed by clinics and programs on their bocce, shuffleboard, handball and basketball courts.
Pier 2 is the Park’s second active recreation pier, and features five acres of active recreation courts for basketball, handball, shuffleboard and bocce, as well as a full size roller skating rink, swings, picnic tables, restrooms and fitness equipment. Pier 4 Beach is a unique sandy shoreline that allows park visitors to access the East River for non-motorized boating and educational programs.
