Behind the Scenes

About us

Found in Brooklyn, Marine Park is made up of 798 acres, making it the perfect location to view wildlife in its natural habitat. See blue herons stalk fiddler crabs in the marsh at low tide as you admire the splendor of Gerritsen Creek. Or pedal along Marine Park Greenway Loop on a bike to see nesting osprey or migrating monarch butterflies that visit the marsh on their migration.
