Lying in the heart of Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, Herbert Von King Park is a lively town square with a storied history. Originally called Tompkins Park, Von King is one of the first parks in the history of Brooklyn, with a design submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Today, Von King Park remains a very active respite from the city grind, thanks to the involvement of a strong community that helped build a unique Cultural Arts Center. In addition to its fitness equipment and baseball field, visitors to Von King Park can immerse themselves in the arts, whether using an indoor dance studio or attending a free concert in an outdoor amphitheater.
