This weekend, Brooklyn Bridge Park will be filled with cheese, frankfurters, sand — and eager park-goers galore.
Park officials announced that a concessions building and three sand volleyball courts would finally open at Pier 6 at the foot of Atlantic Avenue on Saturday, bringing more bustle to the unfinished 85-acre waterfront park along the East River.
Park Slope’s joint Bark will sell its organic hot dogs; the Milk Truck will churn out the grilled cheese and milkshakes that fans have come to love at the Brooklyn Flea; Uncle Louie G will sell Italian ices; and Blue Marble will scoop out its all-natural ice cream.
In June, Bark will expand its operation to the pier’s outdoor roof deck on weekends, serving craft beer and wine through Labor Day — and fulfilling a decades-old vision of park planners: a drink on the waterfront.
A Brooklyn Bridge Park spokeswoman said on Tuesday that in addition to the new grub, the pier’s lush green walkways would ready on Saturday. The southernmost section of the proposed 1.3-mile-long park from DUMBO to Atlantic Avenue already features a mega-playground, dog run and pedestrian promenade, which opened last summer.
