That pop-up park on Brooklyn Bridge Park land whose renderings we posted back in late May? It will be opening on June 26, the same day that Olafur Elliason's waterfalls are turned on. The summer park was announced at a local community board meeting last night, the Brooklyn Eagle reports, and will remain open through Labor Day. It will include four sod mounds "with a slight elevation to improve viewing and to give children something to roll down," 1,700 square feet of sand, ten benches, 10 picnic tables and, uh, four trees. Yes, four trees, "to provide shade." (Don't everybody try to get into the shade at once.) The park will be open from 10AM to 10PM and Rice will operate a concession stand. Veggie tofu meatballs while one angles for a seat on one of the 10 benches or shade under one of the four trees and watches the water fall!
