In Red Hook, Coffey Park is the place to go. It is where everybody goes to hang out, relax, and have fun. Coffey Park has been in Red Hook since 1901, and just a couple of years ago, nobody would dare to enter it. In the 1980s and 1990s Coffey Park was run-down and dangerous. Thanks to the hard work of John Clark the gardener at Coffey Park and his volunteers, the Coffey Park Gardeners, Coffey Park has changed greatly in recent years, becoming one of the most well-known and loved parks in Red Hook.

coffey park is a great park. it has lots of shade because of the abundance of trees and it also has many places where you may have barbecues or picnics. the thing i like the most about coffey park is the various amount of activites it has to offer. such as a basketball court, baseball field,handball courts,ect.

It also has lots of space and is right down the street from Ikea. Just walk down Richards Street and you're there!
