The lawns of Brooklyn Bridge Park are used by thousands for picnicking, playing, movie watching and, of course, the opera. Their stunning views and lush green grass make them especially popular with visitors. There are over 10 lawns at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Can you believe all the lawns are maintained organically? This is a complex and experimental process because turf lawns are an unnatural ecosystem - the grass is not native, the soil is compacted and the plants are continuously cut to keep them low. This makes the laws of Brooklyn Bridge Park a perfect place for families but you have to leave Fido at home, sort of Brooklyn's backyard. Be sure to check out Brooklyn Bridge Park's website for weekly lawn closures and the movie schedule.
