Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn Now Open

Live in Brooklyn and have an active kiddo? There’s some good news: Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn is finally open in Prospect Heights!

A family destination for all things sports-related, the new facility features a pool, Olympic-sized gymnastics center, two boarded turf fields and so much more that kids will love.

Think of it as a little gym for kids. 

The new, 2.5-acre facility took about 3.5 years to build and is an outpost of the famous Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. It officially opened on June 17.

“We’ve done our research, and we feel strongly that this facility will meet the high demand for family-friendly sports programming Brooklyn,” general manager Erika White said. “Among the many activities offered are recreational classes, summer and school break camps, competitive teams, leagues, birthday parties, special events and private instruction for the whole family.”

Jessie Betts Dreyfuss, chief operating officer at the facility, described a few stand-out features that kids will especially love. 

“Our two biggest attractions for kids are the warm-water pool and deep foam pits in the gymnastics center,” Betts Dreyfuss said. “The pool is four feet deep everywhere, so kids can feel comfortable and safe while they gain confidence in the water and learn the basics of stroke techniques. The deep foam pits in the gym are like a magnet for the little ones. Our pits are especially fun because you can launch into them from our tumble track, trampoline, vault, or our rope swing.”
