Prospect Park, Brooklyn
(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Designed by the same landscape architects who created Central Park, Prospect Park is home to Brooklyn's only lake, which spans 24 hectares (60 acres) and is surrounded by woodlands, walking paths, and lawns. The park is full of memorials, including the Litchfield Villa and a statue of General Lafayette. Stop first at the Boathouse visitor center for information on park events and attractions. Rent a bicycle to tour the trails if you want to cover a large area in a shorter amount of time. Arrange to visit Prospect Park and other attractions in Brooklyn using our Brooklyn vacation planner.

  • The same gentlemen who designed Central Park, designed Prospect Park in Brooklyn, a real beauty with mature trees and public library, the Museum of art, the Botanical Garden and the Zoo are in that area.

  • Probably the best park in NYC. There is actually enough space here. Pretty walls and big open fields. Lots of babies and dogs. Great place.
  • Love this park and especially the activities that it offers. From Boating to Zoo and Horse riding. It's a well maintained park. I has some really nice views especially by the water (the bridge). The Autumn in this park is amazing.
  • Great park to visit and enjoy the beautiful weather. Walking through the different paths and exploring the park is pretty fun. Usually there is lots of people working out. Beautiful place for photos and great park for tourist. Overall great experience walking through the park.
  • A true oasis. Awesome full size park with room to roam. The location is tops too as its near all kinds of places to eat, shop, and see. Great place to relax right off the train at Dekalb.
  • Fantastic area. Has great food and is cool & relaxing. The smorgasbord has nice food and the Mexican chocolate chip ice cream is fantastic. The lemonade is made of fresh-squeezed lemons. Great park.
