the project

Parkside Plaza is nothing short of a passion project for the Flatbush community. In 2015, we transformed the Plaza from a nondescript patch of pavement in front of the Q station into a safe and beautiful place to relax on outdoor furniture and enjoy live music and dancing, film screenings, pop-up libraries, a Grow NYC Farmers Market, Voter Registration, Census, etc.

the steps

In 2022, we want to continue to expand our offerings, and find new ways to celebrate the things that make our neighborhood great. We are excited to continue to provide great programming for the community by local artists and businesses. 

But we can’t do it without your help. By donating, you ensure the Parkside Plaza remains a safe, fun and vibrant place where Brooklynites can connect, express themselves, find resources they need or simply enjoy the bustle of the neighborhood.


why we're doing it

Today, Parkside Plaza represents our community to the thousands of commuters and Prospect Park visitors who cross it every day, drawing visitors into our neighborhood to eat at our restaurants and shop in our stores. Keeping the Plaza at its best and most vibrant has taken years of advocacy and financial support from our voluntary team of friends and neighbors — but while we work hard to run programming and sustain the plaza’s insurance and maintenance, we depend on the support of the neighbors and local businesses to continue serving our community.
