Features dynamic recreational amenities. Formerly owned by the prosperous Lott family, the property evolved from early farming roots to become lined with row homes and businesses by the 20th century. Transformed into a playground in 1955 as part of the Van Dyke Houses development, this site has since been a hub for community engagement and outdoor activities. Managed by NYC Parks since 1957, Van Dyke Playground features handball courts, playgrounds, and spray showers, catering to the diverse needs of its visitors while preserving its rich historical legacy. Its location on Dumont Ave. between Powell St. and Mother Gaston Blvd. further enhances its accessibility and appeal within the vibrant borough of Brooklyn.
