One of the Nicest Brooklyn Bike Paths!
Currently under construction is the Greenway Bike Path in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The designated bike path offers riders beautiful scenic views of the park's surroundings. The path contains a two-way bike lane and a pedestrian walkway, and you can bike anytime during park hours (6 A.M. to 1 A.M.).
Please remember that cycling is only permitted within the designated bike path. You cannot bike on park paths or the pier promenades. If you need to lock up your bike, bike racks are located throughout the park. Once construction is completed on the Greenway Bike Path, it will be a 14-mile route for transportation and recreation, and extend from Greenpoint to Sunset Park in Brooklyn.
Some of the Finest Brooklyn Birding!
One of the best bird watching places Brooklyn has to offer; Brooklyn Bridge Park constantly attracts a rich variety of songbirds, water birds, and birds of prey. Birdwatchers have counted at least 60 species of birds of songbirds at the park's cove--some passing through, some there for the season, and some dwelling in the region all year round. With the installation and growth of the upland and shoreline habitat along the park, it will almost outnumber Prospect Park as a major stopover for multiple bird species.
Mallards and Canada Geese swim in the cove throughout the year, joined in the winter by the Black Ducks of inland waters. In the winter the cove is visited by sea ducks and bay ducks. Other water birds and raptors that are frequently seen in the park include the Great Black-backed Gull, Herring Gull, Ring-billed Gull, Double-crested Cormorant, and the Peregrine Falcon.
