Fort Greene Park - is a park located near the hospital in the north-west section of Brooklyn.
The original park was called Washington Park, but in 1896 the name was changed to Fort Greene. For Americans, the park is a living witness of history, where its territory is a battle for independence. Today, it is an island of wildlife in jungles of Brooklyn. The park is a monument to the dead Americans who fought for independence. It is called "floating prison martyrs". In 1873, the architects of the park had designed and built a stone crypt for the burial of the remains of 11,000 Americans who died on British ships. In the park not only you can just stroll through the shady alleys, but also play sports; for example tennis. And if you walk with children a special playground is provided for them in the park. You can walk the dogs. In the park, throughout the year various festivals: music, art, literature are conducting. The park is located in the area that bears the same name. Entrance to the park is free.
