Bay Parkway is a relatively sleepy station on the Culver Line, the station is surrounded by cemeteries to the south of it, and because of this the stop has just one central exit in the middle of the station, instead of two separate ones at either end of the stop, like most Culver Line Stations. The station has two side platforms for the three track line, that are canopied and windscreened only towards their mid-sections at are completely exposed to the elements, with just a fence separating them from the cemeteries below, meaning waiting passengers have quite a good view from the station of the rooftops of central Brooklyn. Two staircases from each platform lead down to the central fare control area with its turnstiles and token both and in tern, three staircases lead down from the station house beneath the tracks, two to the NE corner, and one to the SW corner of the diagonal intersection of Bay Parkway across McDonald Avenue.
