New Parade Ground Comfort Station

The new place to "go" is the recently-completed comfort station in the Parade Ground, opening for use on Wednesday, September 25th, at 1:00 p.m. The Prospect Park Alliance, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, and New York State Assemblymembers Rhoda Jacobs, Jim Brennan, and Joan Millman will be present then. The four elected officials and the New York City Council funded the bathroom's construction. 

The bathroom is located pretty much in the middle of the Parade Ground, next to a snack bar that's open from April through mid-November and serves hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn, and snacks.

The forty-acre Parade Ground is located just south of Prospect Park, between Coney Island Avenue and Parade Place and between Caton Avenue and Parkside Avenue. It offers accommodations for children and adults to play baseball, softball, tennis, soccer, basketball, volleyball, and football. It also has a playground.
