Pacific Bears Community Garden


About Pacific Bears Community Garden

Founded in 1985, The Pacific Street Brooklyn Bear’s Community Garden was named after a teddy bear gardeners found in the weeds at an early workday. At a time when the City had all but abandoned this corner of Brooklyn, neighbors took matters into their own hands with a beautification project that has endured for over 25 years. In 1997 a new development project began, and the original Pacific Street garden was plowed to make way for the Mall buildings you see next door. After incredible community support, the Bear’s fought back and recreated the garden on a portion of the original site. Since 1999, the group has been tending the garden you see before you. With strong support from the community, the Borough President’s office, and City and State officials, all three Bear’s Gardens are now a permanent part of their communities — Carlton and Rockwell under the NYC Parks Department and Pacific Street as part of the Brooklyn Alliance of Neighborhood Gardens (BANG) Land Trust. All 3 gardens are tended by volunteers, and everyone is welcome to join.
