I was told by several people this was a beautiful park to visit. I suppose for those that are more outdoorsy or like the woods, this is ideal. I found it to really just be a huge forest with a few roads through it. I also went on a day during the summer that rain was expected so the humidity... More

Despite the heavy traffic and large number of pedestrians, when ever you need to escape, the Park offers many escapes. There is the waterfall, the mini zoo (by New York Standards), the lake and its boats, the meadows and for those who like it birds to amaze and watch. Room enough to play ball or kites to fly. Whether you... More

Beautiful...first time we've actually been able to walk through the park. Truly a great Sunday afternoon treat...or anytime treat for that matter.

It's nice to see a little green in Brooklyn. Nice paved paths, playground and other features for city people to enjoy.

Although the sights and sounds of Manhattan are an essential part of a visit to New York, for me the calm, architecture and atmosphere of Park Slope and the oasis of Prospect Park are by far my favourite part of New York. A walk on a sunny Autumn day through this lovely space is a wonderful way to recharge -... More

Great spaces, and so much going on. The park allows you to get away from the din of the city in some beautiful peaceful surroundings.
