As Brooklyn's largest park, Marine Park has plenty of room to serve a lot of needs.
Environmentally, it consists of 530 acres of grassland and precious salt marsh, protected as a Forever Wild
preserve. The Urban Park Rangers present bushels of educational and fun activities in its Salt Marsh Nature
Center each week, and interested, independent visitors can wander along the Salt Marsh Nature Trail to
observe unique regional flora and fauna.
Recreationally, the park offers amenities as varied as a golf course, bocce courts, cricket fields, and baseball
diamonds, to name but a few. The park also contains multiple playgrounds, bicycle greenways, and a launch
and landing site for canoes and kayaks at Gerritsen inlet.
