Even in the middle of winter, Prospect Park is alive with activity. Lots of trails ... biking and hiking. Fun place for all ages. This is a jewel in the heart of Brooklyn. The Alliance has done a great job in keeping this park well preserved.

Real natural feel and look to the winding trails that follow the water brooks and falls. Amazing pond. Lots of room for frisbie or a game of baseball.

Whenever I visit my friends in Park Slope, I can't wait to visit Prospect Park. It's a gorgeous oasis in the middle of the city. And the dog park is phenomenal. On certain mornings it is off leash, which is a great time to meet with some fellow dog people. And dogs!

I frequent Prospect Park mostly to use its bike path, which provides for a solid route to a strong cardio workout. Still, this place has so much more, from running paths and trails, to horse trails, to ball fields, to boating and fishing. It's truly a gem of Brooklyn. It's especially beautiful during mid spring or as fall is coming... More

If you're a jogger, that a thing for you. Also if you're in for land skiing (in winter of course), walking, sledging, etc.

My husband and I didn't know what to expect when we decided to take a trip to Prospect Park! Sure you've heard of Central Park (who hasn't) but for many foreigners (especially those from across the seas) Prospect Park was a bit of a mystery. The park is huge and easy enough to get to via subway (there's a few... More

At one of the high points of Brooklyn, Prospect Park is a oasis in the city. The entrance at the north end is at Grand Army Plaza, a large traffic circle with the largest arch in the city. Prospect Park was designed by the same guys that designed Central Park and although it is a bit smaller, is even more... More

Prospect Park, covering almost 600 acres , one of the oldest and biggest urban parks of North America, was also created by the same two landscape designers after they completed landscaping the central park in Manhattan ,New York. Originally a thick wooded forest , and now abundant with age-old forest trees forming a canopy over the many shaded pathways and... More
