They outdid themselves on this, doing here what they were unable to accomplish in Central Park. Could not be better -- what a treasure.

What a wonderful large city park. Lots of room to relax, play sports, rib, bike, or whatever. It's kept up pretty clean and it never felt unsafe.

right in back of the zoo...of course you'll be risking life and limb... of the passersby, that is...it's hard to tell what's on the other side of the curves sometimes...and you're going like a bat just escaped from the batcave...or the zoo, in fact...it's hard to find good hills in nyc(spanish harlem had some REAL good ones...but there's no way...

It is an excellent place for biking, jogging or running or a family outing or picnic. In nice spring weather ball playing or watching the ducks is enjoyable for children.

When we visit family in Brooklyn, we are very fortunate to have this park so close. It is such a gem and welcome respite from the city. The road around the park is perfect for a 3.5 mile run or walk. Hills, trees, lots of hidden trails, bridges and stairs to get lost in, on purpose of course.

We took several long walks around the park and enjoyed watching families having picnics, playing soccer, riding bikes, splashing in the kiddie pools.

Prospect Park is much bigger than expected and full of fabulous vistas and landscapes that make Central Park so great. Exellent for people watching, music, street performed and all the great stuff that happens in a great city park.

I had an amazing time strolling in the park with my friends. It's a great place to have a picnic with friends or family and enjoy the day.
