McCarren Park

McCarren Park

McCarren Park sits squarely on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Originally referred to as Greenpoint Park, the 35 acres of bustling activity was renamed McCarren Park in 1909 after a local politician secured funding to modernize the facility. Complete with baseball and soccer fields, courts for handball, basketball, tennis, a fitness facility, a skatepark, grills, a playground, and a New Deal Era swimming pool. Perhaps you all recall the pool is were our organization co-hosted the famed Pool Party Concerts from 2006-2008.
