Marine Park

Brooklyn’s biggest egg-hunt will be in Floyd Bennet Field, where the Green Meadows Farm will host a five-day eggstravaganza! Kids can hunt for colored eggs filled with prizes, pose for pictures with Whiskers the bunny, and go on a hayride. And for an egg-stra fee, there are pony rides and a petting zoo.
