Thanks to a new public-private partnership between State Parks and the Natural Heritage Trust, a “bike library” that provides free loaner gear to visitors at Shirley Chisholm State Park is open for its third season.
Supported by the Con Edison Power of Giving program, the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, the Bloomberg Philanthropies, and the Natural Heritage Trust, the program also offers bike riding classes for all ages.
Located on Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, the 407-acre park offers ten miles of car-free paths with beautiful vistas.
Online reservations are accepted at both the Fountain Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue sides of the park. The library, which requires users to leave a valid ID, operates Thursday through Sundays, weather permitting, from 10 am to 4 pm
