Brooklyn bridge park (bbp), is the not-for-profit entity responsible for the planning, construction, maintenance and operation of brooklyn bridge park, an 85-acre sustainable waterfront park stretching 1.3 miles along brooklyn's east river shoreline. Throughout the year hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the park to experience a diverse array of arts, cultural, and recreational programs. Ongoing projects through the year include construction of the pier 5 uplands, which will add 145,000 square feet of new parkland, including sloping and terraced lawns, a grove with a flexible seating area, and a sound attenuating berm to reduce traffic noise; construction of pier 3 which will add 3 acres of green space to the park including a central lawn, a flexible hardscape area for recreation and programming, and an exploratory labyrinth featuring historic elements salvaged from the park; and construction of bbp's boathouse and new maintenance and operations facility scheduled to be open in 2018. Additionally, bbp in conjunction with the brooklyn children's museum announced the opening of spark, a new 1,850 square foot arts and play space located at one john street.
