Brooklyn Bridge Park Path

New York, Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bridge Park Path

Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85‐acre world-class waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline with rolling hills, riverfront promenades, lush gardens, and spectacular city views. In fact, the waterfront along DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights has been revitalized into a sustainable park with a bike path offering breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.


If you let your bike home, it is just fine. Just grab a Citi Bike at the Old Fulton St station under the Brooklyn Bridge, and ride south through the 1.3-mile-long park from Pier 1 to Pier 6. It's closed to cars, so you won't have to worry about traffic. You can drop your bike off at the Atlantic Ave & Furman St station, or turn around and make a round-trip.

BBP is also accessible by bus, subway and ferry.

Food and Drink

The path provides visitors with a roster of food and drink options, which have made Brooklyn Bridge Park a culinary destination. Stop at the piers to taste the best ice-cream or coffee in the area.

More details

You can easily take a leisurely ride along this scenic and bike-friendly waterfront greenway that traverses the park from Pier 1 to Pier 6, or use your bike to easily access destination points throughout the park.

Remember that cycling is permitted only on the designated bicycle path, and not permitted on park paths or the pier promenades. Bike racks are located throughout the park. Just do not lock your bike to park fences or railings.

Park Restrooms are located at Pier 1, Pier 2, Pier 6, Squibb Park, 99 Plymouth at Main Street and in Empire Stores. Lockers are available to store your possessions while you play at Pier 2 and Pier 5. Pier 2’s lockers are accessible for 25 cents, while Pier 5’s lockers require a personal lock.
