Brooklyn Bridge Park’s new Pier 2 is a fun fitness haven, with five acres of state of the art facilities offering free sports and games for New Yorkers. There are basketball, handball and bocce courts – among many others – to keep the kids entertained for hours, and the stunning views of Manhattan’s Financial District make it an ideal tourist attraction.

Pier 2 is definitely worth checking out this summer because you can cool off after an intense workout at the seasonal Pop Up Pool and sandy beach. If you want to enjoy the water without getting wet, Pier 2 has you covered with kayak rentals that are free!

If you live in or are visiting New York this summer we definitely recommend taking a trip! Go to brooklynbridgepark.org to check out all the events and activities. Here’s what you can expect to see and do:
