Paerdegat Park

This East Flatbush park, bounded by Foster Avenue to the north, Albany Avenue to the east, Farragut Road to the south and East Fortieth Street to the west, is named for Paerdegat Basin, a one and one quarter mile-long channel that empties into Jamaica Bay in nearby Bergen Beach. Paerdegat Basin, named for a Dutch word meaning “horse gate” is a saltwater wetland area. Groves of trees such as the ailanthus, honey locust and smooth sumac in the basin’s upland region provide a welcome habitat for many species of birds and animals whose numbers have dwindled in recent years.
