ENY Success Garden

449 Williams Avenue
Brownsville, Brooklyn
Rebuilt in 2015

ENY Success Garden is a large 40,000 square foot community garden that functioned successfully for decades, but had fallen into disrepair and had been left unattended for years by the time GrowNYC took on a major rebuilding project in 2015.

GrowNYC staff restored the stage and gazebo, built new picnic tables and garden benches, and created a large 10,000 square foot garden area for the adjacent Brooklyn Gardens Elementary School. The colorful additions to the garden let the neighborhood know that their once thriving space is ready for future use.


This garden is under the jurisdiction of NYC Parks and supported by GreenThumb, the nation's largest urban gardening program. If you are interested in joining, starting, or supporting a community garden, contact NYC Parks GreenThumb
