Has a unique recreational experience for the communities of Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, and Red Hook. Named after the nearby St. Mary Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church, this playground has been a cherished municipal space since the late 1960s. What sets it apart is its strategic location, providing shade even on hot days thanks to the subway overhead. Divided into two sections, the south playground offers a shaded oasis for children, while the north playground caters to older children and young adults with basketball courts and a skate park. With its blend of history, accessibility, and diverse recreational offerings, St. Mary's Playground stands out as a vibrant community hub in Brooklyn.
