Socrates Sculpture Park is committed to remaining free and open to the public, every day of the year. There are two entrances on the North and South sides of the park, which are open daily from 9AM to sunset. Hallets Cove, located just north of the park, is a public beach and kayak launch that is open during warmer months.

Street parking is available on the streets surrounding the park. No parking is permitted directly on the premises unless arranged in advance.

Dog Policies
Dogs are welcome in the park, but must be kept on leash at all times.

From April to September, there are port-o-potties available on the grounds, to the left of the main (south gate) entrance.

Rules & Regulations
Alcohol and barbequeing are not permitted. Picnicking is allowed, but parties of more than 20 people must obtain a Special Events Permit from the Parks Department.

The park is roughly 4.7 acres and has a paved pathway around its perimeter to allow for easy wheelchair access. Individuals or groups with special needs are always welcome and are encouraged to contact the park with any specific questions regarding your visit: 718-956-1819
