Domino Park, a new outdoor option in South Williamsburg

Domino Park just opened in South Williamsburg last June 10th, at the former site of the Domino Sugar Refinery that operated from 1880’s to 2004.

This park is set to be one of Brooklyn’s favorite spots. Apart from the amazing location, and the beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline, Domino Park has options for adults and kids.


 

For the little ones, there is a factory inspired playground designed by artist Mark Reigelman, and a series of water jets that kids will love during hot summer days.







There’s also space for fun for all ages like a beach volleyball court, two bocce courts, a 6,300-square-foot playing field for soccer and a little dog run.





You can call us bias but our favorite part is the lawn space that can be used for picnics. There’s nothing we love more than a laid back picnic afternoon looking at the Manhattan skyline. Remember, Upicnic can plan your picnic, with food, drinks, blankets, games and whatever you need for an amazing afternoon. Summer is not completely gone yet! This 4 season lawn is also perfect for books and sun-bathing, or yoga and sun-bathing, or whatever your Brooklyn heart tells you to do while sun-bathing!




At Upicnic we love an environment-friendly place, and we were happy to learn that the old factory floor was re-used for the deck chairs, and the sunken steps at the water. Also, the old crane tracks were turned into gardens, and pieces of machinery were sprinkled along the waterfront. Our favorite final industrial touch at the south end of the park, were the four 36-feet tall cylindrical tanks that used to collect syrup in the old factory days.




 


If you’re still hungry after your picnic, Tacocina, a new Danny Meyer restaurant will be offering tacos, snacks, cocktails and Mexican beer to finish your park day right. They’ll be open seven days week from 11am to 11pm.


 

Domino Park is located along the East River in Williamsburg between Grand Street and South Fifth, and opens daily from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Park entrances are along Kent Avenue at South 5th Street, South 3rd Street and Grand Street.
