On June 17, Chelsea Piers, New York City’s go-to destination for sports and recreation, will celebrate the launch of Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn, its new family-friendly sports facility located at 601 Dean Street. The community-focused event invites the public to the new state-of the-art recreational center to experience all that the Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn has to offer. The massive family-friendly facility highlights include an 80+ degree learn-to-swim pool, an Olympic-sized gymnastics center, two boarded turf fields, a specialized ninja + parkour center, and several birthday and event spaces.
The Field House launch party gives visitors full access to the heated instructional pool, Olympic-sized gymnastics center, two turf fields, and ninja + parkour center. The event, lasting from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and held alongside the Vanderbilt Open Streets festivities, will encourage athletes of all ages and levels to kick, dribble, swim, jump, tumble, and climb through activities, showcasing its world-class equipment and top-notch coaching synonymous with the trusted Chelsea Piers brand.
“We’ve done our research, and we feel strongly that this facility will meet the high demand for family-friendly sports programming in Brooklyn,” said General Manager Erika White. 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.
Building on almost 30 years of history in the Greater New York area, Chief Operating Officer Jessie Betts Dreyfuss noted that the mission of Chelsea Piers “remains rooted in using sports as a vehicle to instill values in our youth participants including dedication, self-confidence, teamwork, perseverance, and the pursuit of excellence.” Dreyfuss added that the new Field House will be “more than just a sports facility; it is a home away from home that offers a safe space for youth and families to reach their personal best.”
The launch also marks the establishment of the Chelsea Piers Foundation. Chelsea Piers and its related companies have pledged $1 million over five years to support The Chelsea Piers Foundation and its ongoing commitment to social impact and youth development. Since its founding in 1995, Chelsea Piers has provided scholarships to over 12,000 New York City kids through its Chelsea Piers Scholarship Fund and the Sky Rink Youth Scholarship Fund. By partnering with organizations like Win (formerly Women in Need) and Rising Tide Effect, the Chelsea Piers Foundation will have a lasting and meaningful impact within our communities.
Chelsea Piers Field House Brooklyn is located within TF Cornerstone’s Pacific Park development in Prospect Heights on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues, next door to Chelsea Piers’ newest fitness center. The Chelsea Piers Field House will host weekly day camps and Saturday morning recreational classes for the summer. The fall will see the launch of full-scale after-school and weekend classes as well as competitive programs and adult leagues. Join us for summer camp, baby swim lessons, drop-in classes, individualized coaching programs, birthday parties, and more!
