Not in the mood to break a sweat? Not to worry: cheer on your team from beneath the spectator benches. Or plan a picnic on our 30-foot wide promenade for a meal with magnificent views of lower Manhattan, Governors Island, and New York Harbor.

Pier 5 is dedicated to active recreation and features playing fields capable of configurations for soccer, lacrosse, rugby, flag football and ultimate Frisbee. Players and spectators can watch the game from the bleachers and benches situated along the sidelines.

If you are interested in obtaining a permit for your league or team, you may apply for a permit.

After working up an appetite, head over to Picnic Peninsula for a barbecue on one of our hibachi-style grills. Picnic Peninsula is the largest of the park’s picnic areas and features salvaged wood picnic tables and weather-resistant umbrellas. Still hungry? Stop by OddFellows Ice Cream Co. for dessert and try one of their delicious flavors.

Don’t forget to bring the kids to the play areas located adjacent to Picnic Peninsula. These two playgrounds feature equipment for older and younger children.

The perimeter of the Pier includes a 30-foot wide promenade that offers magnificent views of lower Manhattan, Governors Island, and the New York Harbor. The promenade features three view finders, one of which is ADA accessible.

ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina offers unparalleled water access to the local Brooklyn community, New Yorkers, and boating enthusiasts from around the globe. Located in the East River north of Pier 5, the Marina features an exceptional community program as well as seasonal docking facilities in the calmest marina basin in New York Harbor.

The Pier 5 Sports Fields will be temporarily closed during periods of heavy snow and other inclement weather to preserve the field surface. Please check the alert notifications on our homepage and our Twitter to stay up to date on closures.


Drop in to play at the Pier 5 turf when leagues are not scheduled. Drop in times are first come, first served. Leagues that have timed permits are not allowed to use open play times. When others are looking to play, please keep play time to one hour and share the field.

To form your own league for regularly recurring use of a field at the Pier 5 Turf, please apply for an Athletic Permit. If you would like to rent a field for one time use, please apply for a Special Events Permit.

This schedule is subject to change due to weather and field availability and may not always be immediately reflected on this calendar.
