Urban dwellers crave space. Wide open spaces where kids can run free. City parks are great (in fact we love them!), but what about rain, snow or summer days that hover around 100 degrees? I suggest planning a road trip to Aviator Sports in Brooklyn. It's an 800-acre decommissioned airport, that's been converted to a haven for the energetic urban kid.
This huge sports complex has descended on Bennett Field and is now the coolest place for parents to plan a day of sport and fun. What's there to do you ask? Whew, I'm exhausted just talking about my tour. Here are some statistics:
* Parking for over 5,500 cars
* 170,000 square feet of total indoor events, athletics, and recreation space for individuals, families, and groups
* 20,000 square foot field house (indoor hardwood courts and indoor turf fields)
* Two outdoor synthetic turf fields with bleacher seating for over 5,000 spectators
* Outdoor events space for festivals, fairs, concerts, and community oriented entertainment
* Conveniently located approximately 10 miles from both Lower Manhattan and JFK Airport
On my visit I tested the rock climbing wall. For ages 5 and up this is an indoor challenge (Day Pass – $18.00 per person/per day) the kids will find irresistible. Anyone that lives nearby can sign up for camps and classes, for the rest of us New Yorkers, an occasional day of play or heading out there for a special event (like the Kings County Fair) is ideal. I say on the hottest day of July head out to skate (Adults: $8, Children: $6 Skate Rentals: $5/pair).
