“It is in the heart of what is perhaps the prettiest residential section of the city, and is bounded by Park and Prospect Places, Brooklyn and Kingston Ave’s. Unlike the other small parks, Bedford Park is not a level space in which trees and shrubberies are planted, with here and there a flower garden, with asphalt walks around it. There are quite a number of fine old trees distributed over the block, so they form something like a grove. Then the center rises as so as to form an eminence, and although little or no landscape gardening has been done, it is, as has already been said, probably the prettiest park in the city…The park’s old growth trees provided natural shade, and curving pathways with benches constructed amidst them; The rolling terrain provided natural interest and diversity, and the entire park was circled by a low iron fence (Morris, Walkabout: Brooklyn’s Small Parks: Brower Park, 2012; Morris, Walkabout:Brooklyn’s Small Parks: Brower Park, pt.2, 2012) Read more.
