Brooklyn is about to get a sweet new spot.
The former site of the Domino Sugar Factory that has been transformed into sprawling public waterfront park—with amenities ranging from a 450-foot-long elevated catwalk to bocce courts, a volleyball court and a taco-and-margarita joint operated by Danny Meyer—is finally set to open this Sunday.
“The opening of Domino Park fulfills our promise to deliver this long walled-off ribbon of the Williamsburg waterfront to the residents of north Brooklyn—residents whose families worked at this factory for generations and who have contributed to the diversity and vibrance of one of New York’s most enchanting neighborhoods,” said Two Trees principal Jed Walentas, the development group behind the new park.
This Sunday’s ribbon-cutting celebration will run from noon until 4pm with a bunch of cool stuff to do like free yoga classes, a tasting of Meyer’s new food-and-beverage concept Tacocina and ice cream from Van Leeuwen. For entertainment, you'll be able to take in live acoustic performances courtesy of National Sawdust, a McNally Jackson read-aloud and even tours of the new park presented by Untapped Cities. We love a party on the water.
