Our favorites are Marine Park, Gerritsen Beach and Dyker Heights.

There is such a variety that you need to check the maps and Google all those green areas. The borough also has some great bike paths, fishing piers, famous beaches (Coney Island) and museums etc.

Come on up after the winter to experience some of what Brooklyn has to offer for yourself.

Brooklyn is filled with recreational areas and parks. Are largest is Prospect park and is surrounded by many neighborhoods. A friend of mine just moved from Tampa to Prospect Heights and loves it. He uses the park to jog and walk his dog. If you need help finding anything, feel free to contact me. Enjoy the weather down there!

In reference to Parks and recreational areas, there is the Amersfort Park on Avenue J, between East 38th and East 39th Street. There are many other kids parks and pools in close proximity. The Prospect Park is a few minutes away. In these parks they do have running paths and lots of people walk their dogs in the parks. It is a beautiful place to live in East Flatbush.

Brooklyn is home to 35 major parks (over 10 acres in size), totaling over 3,683 acres of green-space. It's also the site of the 4,096-acre Jamaica Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the largest such preserve that's fully contained within city limits. Marine Park, located in the namesake neighborhood on the southeast edge of Brooklyn, is the largest, with 798 acres (including the golf course). Leif Ericson Drive Park, wrapping around the ocean side of Bay Ridge, is a close 2nd, with 760 acres of space. The famous Prospect Park, situated between Park Slope and Crown Heights, although only 3rd in size (526 acres), offers a huge selection of activities and amenities, as well as being the site of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the main building of the Brooklyn Public Library, and several other cultural landmarks. A few blocks away, the Green-Wood Cemetery's 478 acres are criss-crossed by over 20 miles of walking paths surrounded by rolling hills and forest groves. The cemetery park's Gothic architecture attracts art and photography students from all over the city. Located between Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, the Dyker Beach Park fills 216 acres of Brooklyn land with greenery and sports equipment, including a golf course famous for bringing the legend of Tiger Woods into existence. Ocean Parkway Malls, the green-space / historic district in the heart of south Brooklyn, presents several miles of landscaped walking paths running alongside the highway. Canarsie Beach Park fills the ocean side of Canarsie (far east side of Brooklyn), giving the local residents over 132 acres of pristine green space. Coney Island is home to the Coney Island Beach & Boardwalk, a confluence of amusements, museums, entertainment venues, and the longest continuous wooden oceanside promenade in the United States - the Riegelmann Boardwalk. At the eastern edge of Coney Island, the Asser Levy Seaside Park & Aquarium offers refuge from the summer sun with its 22 acres of cool green shade, and a chance to see the wonders of marine life in the New York Aquarium. Across Coney Island Creek, the Dreier Offerman Park in Bensonhurst is spread out over 73 acres, including over 6,000 feet of oceanfront property. This is a review of only a few of the major parks in Brooklyn. As you can see, there are plenty of places to enjoy fresh air, take a walk along the ocean shore, play sports, and enjoy cultural events in Brooklyn.
