Main Street Playground


In addition to our popular Pebble Beach and nautical-themed playground, Main Street features an expanded and elevated lawn, an upgraded dog run, Main Street Terrace, and an entry plaza at Washington Street.

Main Street is also the site of the adaptively reused 99 Plymouth building – a former DEP facility now home to the BBP Conservancy’s Environmental Education Center. A learning hub for both school groups and the general public, the Ed Center features interactive exhibits showcasing the plants, animals, and ecology of the Park and the Brooklyn waterfront.

Main Street is also the home of The Cliffs, an expansive attraction comprising one of the largest outdoor bouldering facilities in North America. Its many challenges, which cater to newcomers and experienced climbers alike, will make it a favorite place to climb!

Where is the Environmental Education Center?

The Main Street portion of the park was originally built and designed by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation and opened in 2004, ownership was transferred to BBP in 2010.

Brooklyn Bridge Park published its Master Plan in 2000.

Trees, lawns, and shrubs are managed organically

In 1989 the Brooklyn Heights Association proposed the “Harbor Park” plan, the beginnings of what would become Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The building at 99 Plymouth Street, now home to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Environmental Education Center, public restrooms, and a community space, was formally a NYC Department of Environmental Protection building
