Prospect Park, Brooklyn
Categories: Nature & Parks
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.

Lovely park with more relaxed upkeeping than most city parks, which I will always find attractive. Some parts are in quite a natural state. A lot of locals enjoying their day, too. Perfect for relaxin... read more »
Es un lindo parque para alejarse por un rato del bullicio y ajetreo de la ciudad. Si te sobra tiempo y ya recorriste el Central Park, vale la pena darse una vuelta.

We had a great time walking through Prospect Park! There are so many areas to explore! To start- there is a Toddler playground that is just perfect for the 3 and under crowd! Benches nearby for adults... read more »
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.
What a walk down Memory Lane. Beautiful carousel ride for my kids, took my Nana on her 90th birthday to the Old Neighborhood and a stroll in her park she used to take me as a kid. Snapped some pics at the Captain America statue and spun the little ones silly on that old time merry go round. Couldn't check out the zoo, but there's always next time.
It's beautiful. Plenty of people but there are also plenty of subtle, obscure trails.. The park in general is boasting with activity. There is a road for bikers and joggers with a crosswalk for pedestrians.... "Use the Button!" when crossing or a biker could yell at you for standing there waiting to cross.
Prospect park is not as nice as central park BUT it is a very nice, large park that has great walking and biking trails. People meet up there on the weekends to have fun. It is way less "touristy" than central park
So gorgeous. Everyone thinks of Central Park, and it is awesome in it's own right, but Prospect Park is a total gem. Lots of curvy paths in between large trees, making it feel like you're meandering through a forest.
