Run the Shore Parkway Greenway Trail

Shore Parkway Greenway Trail

Run through Brooklyn with great views of Coney Island and the New York Harbor.

The Shore Parkway Greenway Trail is comprised of two disconnected segments along the New York Harbor that offer more than 12 miles of paved pathway on Brooklyn's southern border. Between the two segments sits Coney Island, well-known for its amusement parks and sandy beaches.

You can run and bike on the path (make sure to check for where you can do what) and just go. It's a pretty straight-forward path that has pretty great views and people watching, so go for a quick or long work out and have fun.
