Family Day Out: Brooklyn Bridge Park

Rejoice!  Spring has finally sprung in New York!  We wanted to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather so we decided to take drive to one of our favorite NYC spots, Brooklyn Bridge Park!  

View of Brooklyn Bridge from Pier 1 @ Brooklyn Bridge Park

There is so much to do at the park, especially for families!  We parked in the neighborhood streets close to Pier 6.  Brooklyn Bridge Park spans from Pier 1 to Pier 6.  There is also a garage at Pier 6, however we always opt to find parking in the neighborhood streets and walk a bit to the park.

We stopped first at the playground area where there are swings, giant slides, climbing structures, and in the warmer weather an amazing sprinkler play area for the kids!  This first stop is key since it gives our boys time to run it out and get hungry for lunch.

For lunch we usually pack up some food for Little J and Little T and then find something for ourselves. Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great place for a picnic!  There are plenty of areas to sit in front of the water or on one of the piers.  There are also some grassy areas in and around the park.  We opted for lunch at Fornino where we purchased ready-made salads and sandwiches.  Fornino is also known for it's wood fired pizza which looked and smelled YUM!

After lunch we took the kids to another play area at Pier 5.  They had a blast climbing the rope structure and playing in the toddler area.

After running them around for a bit it was just about nap time which gave us a chance to take them for a walk up the park to Pier 1.  The views of the city were stunning on a clear day.  Totally worth the walk!  The kids enjoyed it too since it gave them some time to mellow out and for Little T to eventually fall asleep!

I'm wearing this top and this tank. Some of my favorite athleisure wear.

Overall, an amazing day out with the family!  Get yourself out for some sun, fun, and beautiful views at Brooklyn Bridge Park!  You won't regret it!
