Nestled in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, adjacent to the Fort Hamilton Athletic Field, stands out as a spacious and beloved recreational hub for both children and adults. Positioned conveniently near 84th Street, visitors encounter an array of play equipment, including swings, slides, climbing structures, a spray shower, and a charming boat-themed play area, offering endless entertainment opportunities. As one ventures closer to 85th Street, they'll discover full-sized courts for handball and basketball, catering to older kids and adults alike. Notably, this playground holds a poignant significance, being named in honor of Russell Pedersen, a committed young park volunteer who tragically lost his life while serving in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. This blend of recreational offerings and heartfelt commemoration makes Russell Pedersen Playground a cherished destination within the community.
