Domino Park officially opened Sunday — the fanfare included acrobatics, music and performances — and was flooded with children all weekend.

Sunday’s overcast and drizzly skies didn’t deter them from jumping into the fountain or climbing the Domino Sugar Refinery-themed playground equipment.

Views of the river and passing boats, the 1880s refinery building, and the Williamsburg Bridge made for a dramatic backdrop despite the weather.

I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny. - Dr. Seuss . . 06.11.18 The water playground at the newly opened Domino Park in Brooklyn, New York City . Domino Park, which opened today, sits on six acres of the former Domino Sugar refinery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. . The refinery ceased operations in 2004, and the complex sat unused for years before it was purchased by developer Two Trees in 2012. . There are also elements from the site’s past that are incorporated in the Park. It was great to walk around the new park today, even if it was drizzling a bit. . #SeeYourCity . . . . . #abc7ny #bestcitybreaks #cbviews #cbsnewyork #fox5ny #hello_worldpics #icapture_nyc #ig_color #ig_nycity #ig_shotz_cities #loves_nyc #nbc4ny #newyork_instagram #newyork_photoshoots #nikonlove #ny1pic #nypostnyc #nycprimeshot #rsa_streetview #theprettycities #travelnyc #timeoutnewyork #tv_bridges #urbanromantix #what_i_saw_in_nyc #wonderful_places #wonderfuldestinations
