Pop Up Park Rendering

A surprise opening date of June 26 was announced at a Community Board 2 meeting on Wednesday night for the pop-up park on land being cleared for the future Brooklyn Bridge Park. The opening coincides with the date that Olafur Eliasson’s waterfalls are being turned on. Details about the park per Curbed, via the Brooklyn Eagle:

The summer park was announced at a local community board meeting last night, the Brooklyn Eagle reports, and will remain open through Labor Day. It will include four sod mounds “with a slight elevation to improve viewing and to give children something to roll down,” 1,700 square feet of sand, ten benches, 10 picnic tables and, uh, four trees. Yes, four trees, “to provide shade.” (Don’t everybody try to get into the shade at once.) The park will be open from 10AM to 10PM and Rice will operate a concession stand. Veggie tofu meatballs while one angles for a seat on one of the 10 benches or shade under one of the four trees and watches the water fall!

The park was designed by dlandstudio and we’re sure it’ll be a great spot for the summer.
