Event description
Join NYC H2O and Council Member Adrienne Adams for a cleanup of Baisley Pond Park!

About this Event

Baisley Pond was created in the 18th century when local farmers dammed three streams in order to power their grain mill. The pond and the park are named for David Baisley, a local farmer who owned this land in the early 19th century.

In 1856, the City of Brooklyn purchased the pond and surrounding land and turned it into a reservoir to supplement its water supply. From there, the water was pumped via an aqueduct that ran under Conduit Avenue to the Ridgewood Reservoir where it was then distributed to the residents of Brooklyn.

The cleanup will run from 10am to 12:30pm. Gloves, garbage bags and pickers will be provided. We will maintain 6' between participants, but don't forget to bring your mask!

Please bring plenty of water to hydrate. 💧
