Acquired by the city of Brooklyn in 1836 and formerly named City Park, this 10.3-acre park was renamed for Commodore John Barry, the "Father of the U.S. Navy," in 1951 due to its proximity to the Brooklyn Navy Yard that Barry helped to establish.

Came here for Afropunk and it was fantastic. Although the park is on the sandy side it was still nice. An interesting location under a bridge makes it a bit difficult to get to, but I also think it helps keep things preserved and nice. I would definitely come back here for any sort of event and/or festival in the future.
