Hidden between the Brooklyn Museum, the library, and the botanic garden, this secret little gem of a park has one of the borough’s best views of the Manhattan skyline. Accessible only through two entrances on Eastern Parkway, it’s the second-highest point in Brooklyn but nearly forgotten: the perfect, quiet locale for romantic picnics, tricycle rides, or playing on the secluded playground.
